Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think videos mocking the manic pixie dream girl trope will ever get old. Well, maybe they’ll become less relevant when Hollywood stops churning out films that replace real female characters the MPDG’s, but we definitely aren’t there yet, so, still necessary! Still relevant! Still funny!

This new trailer from Teresa Decher and Jason Nguyen’s Yes Please! comedy channel takes the manic pixie parodies to a much, much darker place. And honestly? This is a film I’d love to see in its entirety. Let’s go there. Let’s travel from the clichéd trope that really only exists in Zach Braff films and man-child brains down into a spiral of murderous turmoil, together. “Murder romcom” should definitely be a genre. Maybe Ryan Murphy could invent that.

In the meantime, someone make a Kickstarter so I can watch the feature-length version of this, alright? Yes, please!
