(Newser) – It's an unconventional way to make a sequel, but Billy Crystal and Rob Reiner have brought When Harry Met Sally into the current century with a 4 1/2-minute video that debuted today on FunnyOrDie.com. Crystal and Reiner pitch the sequel to "studio execs," who agree—with one update. The result is the hilarious Grampires: When Sharon Bit Harry, and also stars Helen Mirren, Maya Rudolph, and yes, even Mike Tyson.

"I'm working in miniature now," Crystal jokes to the AP. "I did two minutes on the Oscars and four minutes on Funny Or Die and a lot of people see it." Further, "Over the years we've talked about, `Could we make a sequel?' And I always thought there was a chance to do something with them. And nobody wanted to get involved with it. Then this little idea hit, and it seemed like the perfect way to have fun with it and also parody the studio system, which is really frustrating at times." (Read more Billy Crystal stories.)
