This new Funny or Die Halloween video of Billy Eichner and Rachel Dratch going through a pop culture haunted house is my new favorite thing on the Internet. You might know comedian Billy Eichner from his endlessly entertaining Fuse game show Billy on the Street, or from the time he freaked out over bartending for his favorite person Meryl Streep on Watch What Happens Live, or from his recent hilarious guest appearance as Craig on Parks and Recreation, or from his flawless Twitter account, which I follow religiously. Here’s a recent Halloween-related tweet he shared.
LITTLE KNOWN FACT: Just because you have a child, doesn’t mean you have to take it to a PUMPKIN PATCH.

As you can see, Billy speaks the truth. That’s definitely the case in this new video. It’s not the first time Billy and fellow funny person Rachel Dratch (from a little show called SNL you might have heard of) have done something hilarious together. Billy also had her complete the “Julia Roberts Obstacle Course” on his show. So it’s pretty much guaranteed that they’ll be adorably entertaining together.
While I don’t want to ruin all of the wonderfulness contained below, I will tell you that the haunted house Billy and Rachel visit doesn’t have any ghosts or zombies. No, this house of horrors is full of much scarier monsters. Pop culture monsters. You know, the monsters who are excited about Last Vegas or insist on reminding you that Steve Carell hasn’t won an Emmy. I’m shuddering just thinking about it. Anyway, if Billy were here, I’m sure he’d tell you to OH MY GOD WATCH THIS VIDEO RIGHT NOW!!!!! And I’d like to second that order, although with fewer exclamation points. To borrow a phrase from Billy, Drew Barrymore would like this.
