The Intro to MacGyver without Music is Hilarious

The MacGyver intro and its theme music are almost iconic to people who grew up during it initial run. But what happens when you take away the music and add appropriate sound effects? Hilarity. Yes, the sounds they chose are funny, but what makes this worth rewatching a few times is just how silly some of the clips are in this montage (ice cream eating). They were added to lighten the mood of the intro, but it is just amazing what a stirring piece of music does to make even simple things seem epic.

I think they need to do a Magnum PI version of this concept next.
