"Serial" Is Now A Romantic Comedy

NPR's Serial, a spinoff of This American Life, tore up the airwaves this fall, as it documented the true case of Anand Syed, who was convicted of murder in 2000, and has been serving a life sentence ever since. It's a morbid story for sure, but host Sarah Koenig's re-telling of the events has taken the nation by storm.

YouTuber Honora Talbott has created a parody of the podcast, with Koenig and Syed starring in a romantic comedy. It's very well done, especially since all of the dialogue is taken from the podcast itself. And it fits pretty well. The ending I could do without, but otherwise, spot on.
