Funny or Die makes ‘The Wire: The Musical’

on

The folks at Funny or Die decided to release Tuesday morning a musical parody of the critically acclaimed HBO series The Wire.

The very surprising video features some of the show’s iconic starts playing their character’s roles while singing in a carefree light heartedness that is a complete contrast of the gritty and dangerous nature of The Wire. From Michael Kenneth Williams displaying a jovial side to his drug dealing, tough-guy character Omar to Andre Royo giving his drug addicted Bubbles some deep baritone tuning, it is quite the colorful display.

No word yet on whether there will be a musical of The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, or Game of Thrones.

WATCH: Video from Funny or Die, from June 5, 2012.

Published

Former Trump attorney general and current Republican Alabama Senate hopeful Jeff Sessions on Friday attempted to walk back an earlier description of a Black Harvard professor as "some criminal."
