Whatever your wife got you for your birthday sucks now

Though America is still working through its Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week, it's nice to know there are some distractions to bring in some much-needed levity. Manhattan-born Israeli animator Leigh Lahav set the bar tremendously high for television-fanatic birthday presents, recreating an elaborate collection of credits sequences using her husband Oren Mendezitsky and their friends and family. It covers everything from Mad Men and Arrested Development to a gorgeous custom Adventure Time rewrite featuring Oren and his dog Missie, and little nods to The Simpsons, Frasier, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Lost. It’s even delightful enough to forgive the reference to 2 Broke Girls, which is basically the best compliment possible in that situation. Watch the video below, and feel the guilt for all the horribly inadequate birthday gifts you’ve given over the years.
