The Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is the hottest thing in comedy television right now, so it’s only natural that someone would create a mashup blending UBS with the M. Night Shyamalan film Unbreakable.

Wait, what?

Yes, you read that right. Someone saw UBS and thought, “This needs more M. Night Shyamalan.”

The twee theme song only underscores how gritty the accompanying visuals are. Christopher Nolan himself would be envious of Shyamalan’s ability to create tortured superheroes like this.

New York comedy group Super Secret Show, which created the mashup, conveyed one viewer’s thoughts on their Tumblr:

“This guy gets it,” they added.

Alright, be honest. After watching this mashup, who’s in the mood for an M. Night revival?
