If you’re going to see Mockingjay Part 1 this weekend, it’s always a good idea to catch up on the previous movies in The Hunger Games series first. If you’re looking for a summary of Catching Fire, the guys at Bad Lip Reading might suggest you watch Les Miserables instead.

In the latest bad lip-reading video from the wildly popular YouTube channel, everyone in Panem is full of song, despite people starving and everything being terrible. Even when the characters aren’t singing, you’ll find the trademark BLR humor that we’ve come to know, raise our eyebrows at, and enjoy anyway.

Haymitch (sounding almost exactly like Woody Harrelson) is asking for advice on nose zits, Katniss can’t deal with Gale’s weirdness, and that Peace Keeper is only looking for dancing tips with his gun. Does it surprise anyone that Prim is actually pretty creepy?

After all they’ve been through so far, would you blame Peeta for wanting a car made out of dead folks? That walrus meat, however, might be harder to get.
