Judd Apatow is guest-editing the first comedy issue of Vanity Fair, and this means he wields slightly more power over many people than usual. That's how he got nearly every single person who has ever appeared on his cult favorite show Freaks and Geeks to come together for a really excellent reunion photo -- students, teachers, parents, they're all here!

It feels both five minutes and one million years ago at the same time! (via Gawker)
