MacGruber Music Video Honors "Greatest Man To Ever Walk Planet Earth"

Now here's a look back at the greatness that is Forte's MacGruber MacGyver that was released earlier today, a compilation of all of the moments our main man was showing off his awesomeness somehow compressed into only a little more than 12 minutes (modern science is pretty amazing):
With the series set to premiere on December 16th, here's a look at the first interview from the disgraced national hero before he begins his journey back to redemption (or even bigger disasters… it really could go either way:
