If you miss (or never saw) the HBO crime drama 'The Wire,' from 2002 to 2008, then here's a chance to catch up on the series per a parody video from the web site 'Funny or Die.'

Many of the actors, who worked on the series poked fun at the TV series via musical parody, including Michael Kenneth Williams, Sonja Sohn, Larry Gilliard Jr., Andre Royo and Felicia Pearson.

The creator of the series, the often grumpy David Simon, wrote on his blog that the parody was “Hilarious. Just great.”
