You might not be old enough to remember the first Got Milk? commercial, but if you do, you know how awesome it is.

A history buff gets the chance of a lifetime: the opportunity to win $10,000 if he can answer the question “Who shot Alexander Hamilton in that famous duel?” Unfortunately for him, he’s got a mouthful of peanut butter, a house full of Alex Hamilton artifacts, and no milk to rinse out his mouth. Sounds pretty epic right?

Well, it turns out that the ad’s epicness isn’t too surprising when you consider that Michael Bay directed the masterpiece. Yeah, Michael Bay, of Transformers, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, and Bad Boys 2. The guy famous for explosions and crazy battle scenes got his start making milk commercials. That’s a win for foodies everywhere. Only one question remains: what director can we convince to make a commercial for Sriracha?

Now, that would be something.
