Glowing from the rush of a new job offer, an actress tells her friends about her latest part. Nearby, an actor tanning himself on a beach calls his mom to give her the good news about his latest gig.

The mom and the friends freeze in horror.

Why? Because these “parts of a lifetime” sound an awful lot, like, well... you’ll just have to see for yourself. 

Parodying a number of critically acclaimed and popular HBO shows, the sketch takes on everything from Girls to True Blood. The video stays safe-for-work and nudity-free, but there are some truly racy descriptions. (If you’ve never watched Game of Thrones, let’s just say you’re in for a shock.) Reddit’s r/videos subforum helpfully laid out the shows in the order in which they’re parodied. 

The video comes from director and actor Alberto Belli, probably best known for directing the zombie musical short Zombo and this parody of Anne Hathaway’s turn in Les Miserables. Like many of the “tasteful” scenes of nudity in HBO series, it skirts just shy of actually being porn.

And like many of those same HBO series, it’s something you have to see to appreciate.
