"Orange Is the New Black" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" aren't just two of our favorite shows on Netflix -- they're two of our favorite shows, period. So we love seeing the series show each other some love, especially when it's in the form of a hilarious parody of an already hilarious bit.
The "OITNB" cast took on the challenge of making their own version of now-iconic "Kimmy" tune "Peeno Noir," and the results are pretty spectacular. In "Honey Jar," a reference to Poussey's homemade prison hooch, almost the entire Litchfield gang gets in on the fun, singing along "OITNB"-specific references to the "Peeno" melody. (Special shout-out to Samira Wiley (Poussey) and Adrienne C. Moore (Cindy), who do their best Titus Andromedon warbles throughout the clip.)
Instead of "mid-size car," Alex says "steal a car," and Suzanne swaps out "find out who your true friends are" for "find out who your bunkmates are." The rhyming scheme continues with sly references to past "OITNB" plot points, with Flaca giving a shout-out to "Caputo playing bass guitar" and Boo mentioning the infamous screwdriver ("you'll find it in Boo's boudoir"). Those are just a few of the many, many awesome little moments sprinkled throughout the video, which we'll be watching over and over again for the rest of the day.
And we're not the only ones who love "Honey Jar": The "Kimmy Schmidt" Twitter account posted a reaction video featuring Tituss Burgess, Ellie Kemper, and Jane Krakowski watching the clip, and all three were in awe of the parody.
We can't wait until both of these series return. "Kimmy" will be back first, on April 15. "OITNB" debuts on June 17.
