Could the next stars of True Detective be blue? That’s the thinking behind the Blue Man Group‘s spoof of the show’s moody opening sequence.

The Blue Man Group, best known for its bald-capped, all-blue performance art, took a page from HBO in its most recent promotional video. It’s definitely more PG-13 than True Detective‘s opening credits. 

Blue Detective may not be a gritty as True Detective, but with all that paint, it’s at least as messy.
