The TV world’s favorite ultra-dramatic, ultra-angsty fictional estate would make a fabulous musical, right? The Book of Mormon’s Jason Michael Snow and Kevin Duda apparently thought so. On Monday, they released a video parodying the popular British soap Downton Abbey.

Filmed at 54 Below, one of NYC’s most trendy performance venues, and featuring Broadway and TV favorites such as Colin Mochrie, Matt Doyle, Jeremy Jordan, and Laura Osnes, the 10-minute musical mockumentary has quickly amassed more than 80,000 views on YouTube, as well as mentions in Entertainment Weekly and Vanity Fair.

The spoof touches on all of the show’s most beloved and notorious plot points from the adorable relationship between Bates and Anna and the fates of Mary, Matthew, Sybil and Branson, to poor Edith’s utter lack of allure as well as Thomas’s sexuality.

Downton Abbey and Broadway fans, prepare for the best ten minutes of your life!
