Is Pierce Brosnan anyone's favorite James Bond? When fans of the series rank actors who've played the British spy, Sean Connery, Roger Moore, and Daniel Craig typically claim the podium, leaving Brosnan's Bond to be best known for a video game.

Brosnan wasn't even a bad Bond. His only mistake was joining the series at a low point, having to muscle through some of the laziest scripts in the franchise. Today, the thespian gets a second chance of sorts.

YouTube critic The Unusual Suspect has recut the trailer for upcoming James Bond film Spectre, replacing Daniel Craig with Pierce Brosnan. Similar to the recent recut of Back to the Future Part II, that replaced Biff Tannen with Donald Trump, the short includes a handful of nifty bits of motion-tracking that help suspend our disbelief.

I'm going to open the comments, because I have a question: is it possible for your favorite actor to play James Bond to not appear in any of the best James Bond films?
