The unstoppable machine known as Smosh is rolling out another new film. This one will feature Smosh’s Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla, and rapper T-Pain as…T-Pain. 

Ghostmates, which debuts on YouTube Red on Dec. 14 and follows up last year’s Smosh: The Moviehas the exact premise you’re thinking of:  

In this feature-length comedy from Smosh, luckless Charlie (Anthony Padilla) moves into a new apartment, only to find he has a roommate: a self-centered ghost named Eddie (Ian Hecox). Eddie makes Charlie’s life a living hell, until they learn that the only way Eddie can get into heaven is by working together. 

How T-Pain figures in is still a mystery, but rest assured he will be T-Pain. In other news, the rapper recently released a song about Instagram “personality” Dan Bilzerian
