A Genius Paired 'Unbreakable' & the 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' Song

If you haven't given yourself the gift of watching Netflix's 13-episode miracle titled The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, you should quickly, immediately, even somehow retroactively rectify that

But whether you're in on Kim already or haven't arrived at the promised land yet, this new slice of mashup wizardry, that one right up top, is for you. Because the theme song is—and there's really no other way to phrase this—supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. And M. Night Shyamalan's 2000 film Unbreakable is the exact opposite of everything the neon title credits represent. But now they're together, harmoniously, hilariously, forever. (Side note: that immortal "females are strong as hell" line set to Bruce Willis bench-pressing is a masterpiece all on its own.)

Part of that Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt theme's allure comes from the hand the Gregory Brothers had in making it. If you know 'em, it's as the dudes behind "Auto-Tune the News." And with Kimmy coming from Tina Fey, and with 30 Rock having one of the best themes to ever exist, the bar was pretty high.

Here are the original Kimmy credits. You can just go back and forth between these two clips for the rest of your day if you like. You've got our permission.
