We've seen some amazing bootleg DVD covers in our time, but this True Detective one takes the cake.

And we'd very much like to watch this version of the beloved TV drama, which re-imagines Marty and Rust in a shoot-em-up action flick full of guns and explosions. If a sleepy town in Louisiana didn't tickle your fancy as the backdrop for a crime thriller, then what about this high-octane storyline on the Las Vegas strip, right by the Eiffel Tower of Paris Hotel and the Sphinx by Luxor?

Also, this quote pulled from an obviously bogus Chicago Sun Times review, promises (in perfect Doge-speak) that True Detective is "Amazing perform, full front action." If they're talking about Matthew McConaughey, then count us in!

Jezebel pointed out that on this cover, which was posted by a Redditor, McConaughey's face is superimposed over Brad Pitt's body from Killing Them Softly. Woody Harrelson, though, seems to be squatting lazily with a handgun.

We can only wonder if the Spaghetti Monster will be making an appearance in this bootleg as a mob boss. In the words of Rust, "Time is a flat circle."
