Did they finally accomplish it? After three failed attempts, was the “Greatest Event in TV History” finally achieved? For the fourth outing of the Adult Swim special, Adam Scott and Paul Rudd remake the intro to “Bosom Buddies,” making use of some very special guests along the way.
In the buildup to the intro, both Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari appeared in small roles, along with many of the usual suspects in these, including “Survivor” host Jeff Probst. It was said more than once that this was the final installment, but that can’t possibly be true. If it is, what a truly sad occasion.
As with past incarnations, the fictional story leading up to the unveiling was the shining star. In preparing for the role, Rudd immersed himself in his character and the 1980s, even obsessing over old weather reports. At one point he even moves in with Scott’s family, eventually sleeping with his wife. Just as production nears, Scott is asked to move out.
The remake hasn’t been posted online just yet. In the meantime, take a look at the original “Bosom Buddies” intro below. Did you catch the fourth “Greatest Even in TV History”? What did you think?
