Sonja Sohn, Andre Royo, Felicia Pearson and Larry Gillard Jr. agreed to appear in the short film for comedy video website Funny or Die.

They are seen smiling and dancing on camera, and highlights of the clip include Royo's character Bubbles trying to quit drugs with the help of a group of singers, and a recreation of the show's famous scene where character D'Angelo Barksdale used chess pieces to explain the drug hierarchy in Baltimore, Maryland.

The programme, which ran on U.S. network HBO between 2002 and 2008, portrayed the inner workings of politics, police, the media and the drugs trade in Baltimore.
