Comedy vets Bob Odenkirk and David Cross just dropped a sketch from their upcoming Netflix series W/ Bob & David , set to debut on November 13. The skit—a parody of "know your rights" YouTube videos—pits a very white, try-hard Cross against Key & Peele's Keegan-Michael Key, a cop who doesn't give Cross's police brutality–obsessed character anything to work with.

Cross and Odenkirk are both comedy icons (both have written for VICE in the past; Odenkirk had a column in the magazine for years) who are maybe best known for their 90s cult comedy series Mr. Show, which the A.V. Club called "the greatest sketch show of all time." If the above sketch is any indication, the new show will draw from the same well of aggressive absurdity and upturned expectations as their beloved HBO series.
