He added that “Michael and I have no problem being idiots and making more updated themes” if people enjoyed the video. Given that Giacchino actually provided the music for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and its predecessor, Mission: Impossible III, it’s sadly unlikely that the two would tackle that classic — but maybe if we asked really, really politely?
