Bubbs sings! Omar dances! And Snoop? Wow, this is Snoop like you've never seen her before!

So teases the following Funny or Die video, which is gaining momentum around the Internet for one simple reason: it's downright hysterical.

The musical parody of HBO's The Wire stars actual former cast members - led by Michael Kenneth Williams as Omar - actually singing about the Baltimore drug trade and the themes relayed through five seasons of what many considered the greatest show in TV history.

Indeed, The Wire: The Musical allows you to experience America's failing drug war through the magic of song! Even creator David Simon finds it "hilarious." Watch now.
