It’s “Cupid’s Chokehold” like you’ve never seen it: acted out as a James Bond inspired drama. In a turn only the most irreverent aspects of the Internet could dream up, this video stages the song smack dab in the middle of a high-stakes poker game in 1963. Using the song lyrics as the plot, the players act out Gym Class Heroes’ hit song.

Things become especially humorous as the actors literally repeat a chorus of “oh oh oh”s and “ba ba da da”s from the track. The mood is enhanced with an eerie soundtrack and convincing period costumes.

If you’re a fan of The Office you might also spot a familiar face. Creed Bratton, in a special guest role, plays the Villain. A surprise twist ending will keep you watching to the end.

Catch Gym Class Heroes on tour through April across the East Coast and Midwest.
