Sell The Bricks And Make The Profit In HBO's The Wire... Lego Style

The Wire ticked almost all the boxes required for a quality television series, though US cable channel HBO seems to have a knack for putting together some of the best shows ever, with Game of Thrones being the most recent example. The Wire was missing from its check list was a stop-motion Lego parody, but now, even that’s come about in the video above.

I don’t know what’s more hilarious: Jimmy’s constant companion, a bottle of booze almost as tall as him or, well, Jimmy making out with a female Lego character in nearly every scene. There’s plenty more, but you’re better off watching it than me explaining it.

On another note… they make sawed-off Lego shotguns now? They didn’t have those when I was a kid.
