20 Mind-Blowing Facts About It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia

7. The Opening Credits Are Some Of The Cheapest In TV History

The opening credits of It's Always Sunny are instantly memorable despite the fact that they comprise of shaky hand-held footage of Philadelphia landmarks shot from inside of a car set to generic, public domain music and basic font. They were shot one night by Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney on a camcorder as they drove around the city, costing basically nothing except the price of the gas needed for the car. The credits have, somewhat surprisingly, remained the same throughout the show's history as the budgets for each episode have increased dramatically. They serve as a reminder of the show's humble beginnings.
