The Workaholics guys may have finally climbed down off their roof now that the show has ended, but only to start zip-lining around high-rise hotels, apparently.

On Thursday, Netflix released the full trailer for Workaholics creators Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Blake Anderson's first feature-length film together—and the thing is basically Die Hard but with the singer Shaggy instead of that one coked-out guy.

The movie—called Game Over, Man—was written by Holm and stars the trio as "three friends [who] are on the verge of getting their video game financed when their benefactor is taken hostage by terrorists" at a Los Angeles hotel, according to Netflix.

The dire situation apparently inspires the guys to dress up like waiters, sneak into the terrorist-laden hotel, and pull some John McClane stunts to save their financier... and Shaggy, because he's being held hostage, too. Yes, this Shaggy:

The two-and-a-half-minute trailer is full of blood splatter, machine guns, and Vin Diesel references, and is basically exactly what you'd expect from its Workaholics-in-Nakatomi Plaza premise. Plus, the fact that the movie's title is a nod to Bill Paxton in Aliens shows what kind of 80s action terrain Devine, Holm, and Anderson are dipping into for inspiration.

The action-comedy is produced by Superbad duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and directed by Workaholics co-creator Kyle Newacheck. It's slated to hit Netflix on Friday, March 23, and is just one of the many, many, many films that the streaming service will be cranking out in 2018.

Give the trailer a watch above and pray that Shaggy calls someone "bubby" at some point in the movie.
