It’s going on eight years since The Wire went off the air, but it’s still enjoyed by millions of fans through HBO streaming services, HBOGo and HBO Now. Wire enthusiasts just can’t get enough of Omar jacking, Bunk and McNulty getting sloshed, Stringer scheming, or Chis and Snoop killing. The way most show appreciation is reminiscing on social media. Animator Elliot Lim showed his by recreating the intro to the show with his style and flair.
Lim’s work is seen every time FXX’s Man Seeking Woman comes on, as he’s done its intro. His creation dedicated to The Wire was done in collaboration with DK Studios. It features imagery synonymous with the show and Baltimore while the theme song, “Down In the Hole,” plays in the background. It is truly a work of art. Check out the video below:
