Flashback ‘The Sopranos’ Opening Credits Done Bangor Style [VIDEO]
13 years ago today, our favorite family from New Jersey left the airwaves for good!
It's hard to believe that as of June 13th, it will be 7 years ago since, the late, great, James Gandolfini passed away. His iconic portrayal of mob boss Tony Soprano ushered in a golden age of television that made shows like "Breaking Bad", and "The Wire" possible. And as hard as it is to believe, the now infamous series finale of "The Sopranos" aired 13 years ago today, June 10th, 2007, when it left the airwaves with it's controversial ending, but you can relive the iconic opening of the show Bangor style!
A few years back, a YouTube video from Cody Morgan, brilliantly took the iconic opening theme music, "Woke Up This Morning" and credits to the HBO series "The Sopranos" and set them in Bangor, Maine.
As you might remember, at the beginning of the show, Tony drives back to New Jersey from New York. This video starts on 395, where you see exit signs for Parkway South and Downtown Bangor and you see such landmarks as Bass Park, St. Joseph's Hospital, The Cross Insurance Center, Hollywood Casino, Downtown Bangor and you see the outdoor sign for my buddy Mark's establishment, Carolina's Sports & Spirits.
And just like the real intro, the neighborhoods get progressively better till the driver, chomping on a cigar pulls into the driveway!
During this pandemic, binge watching numbers of "The Sopranos" have skyrocketed, so you may be working your way thru the series, so don't click on this video, because it contains the final moments.
