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.
