From "a man who knows it's Letterman's show and he's just borrowing it."

Seth Meyers found a creative and unique way to pay tribute to David Letterman — by re-creating a shot-for-shot remake of the former Late Night host's 1982 opening.

Meyers, the current Late Night host — and, according to the introduction, "a man who knows it's Letterman's show and he's just borrowing it" — commissioned a special opening package that scrolls through New York City landmarks, including the Empire State Building, Lincoln Center and Radio City Music Hall.

"So many fewer pornography theaters!" Meyers said of the difference between 1982 and now. "It's so sad, because people still bring families here on vacation, and I don't know where they go anymore. I guess, the M&M store."
