Omar, the shotgun-toting stick-up man of The Wire, is finally getting his chance to belt out a solo.

The Wire: The Musical debuted on Tuesday as a web video for the site Funny Or Die. The cast of the HBO drama reprise their roles in a mock song-and-dance adaptation of the famously gritty series about urban life and the drug war.

Among the Wire actors who participate are Michael Kenneth Williams, Sonja “Kima” Sohn, Andre “Bubbles” Royo, Felicia “Snoop” Pearson and Larry “D’Angelo” Gillard Jr.

The video appears as a four-minute commercial that advertises comically sunny songs like Omar’s Comin’ and It’s All in the Game.
