This Sketch Will Make You Rethink Love At First Sight

Now thirty episodes deep into their unparalleled sketch comedy podcast, with some 40,000 followers in the know, comedy troupe Left Handed Radio are going strong, as kaleidoscopic and hilarious and surreal as ever (with no shortage of bottomlessly goofy voices). But today they’ve given us a rare treat—a video take on “I Noticed You,” one of their finest efforts to date.

Starring core LHR members Matt Little and Anna Rubanova, the scene begins with an almost painfully familiar setup—a guy and girl catching each other’s eye from across a generic party. True to form, however, this crew subverts all your expectations, and what was at first indistinguishable from a beer commercial or outtake from Girls becomes something far more absurd, and finally transcendent. Afterward, you’re likely to be a lot more skeptical about the whole ‘soul mate’ thing. 

Get a bonus dose of Left Handed Radio with their anniversary show below—it’s a doozy.
