James Bond: 1962 to 2012

This October will mark 50 years since the well-publicized release of the first James Bond spy film, Dr. No, starring Sean Connery. No doubt, the Web (and The Rap Sheet) will host plenty of anniversary commemorations between now and then.

But there are two celebratory videos worth seeing now. The first is this 50th anniversary trailer, which compiles clips from the 22 Bond films available thus far. (The 23rd, Skyfall, is scheduled to premiere in Britain on October 26 of this year.) Meanwhile, this video parody gives some all-too-honest lyrics to the familiar Bond movie theme written by Monty Norman. The latter video is probably not one you want to be screening during work hours.
