Here’s Hannibal in the Style of Friends’ Opening Credits

Still from YouTube

Hannibal, Bryan Fuller’s sublime take on everyone’s favorite man-eating serial killer, aired its last episode on Saturday. There are whispers about a follow-up movie, but until then fans will ponder a world where the critically acclaimed drama had won the popular audience it deserved. Enter YouTube user Andrew Kuhar, who, by remaking the show’s title sequence in the style of Friends’ opening credits, lends a mainstream appeal—and comically chipper tone—to Lecter’s grotesque exploits.

Is this better than Hannibal's actual, blood-soaked title sequence? Not really. But the clever twist on the Friends fountain is worth the watch alone.
