It must be nice to have a rolodex full of all of Hollywood’s biggest names. Just ask Jimmy Kimmel. For his latest series of Oscar-inspired shorts, he enlisted a whole bevy of actors with serious chops to create trailers based on some of the internet’s most well known memes.

It’s the sort of idea you’d have sitting around stoned with your friends, but if you’re Kimmel, somehow Meryl Streep gets involved.

Here she is along with Tom Hanks and Liam and Chris Hemsworth in a trailer for Bitman Begins, the “where are they now” story of Charlie bit my finger (skip the add by jumping to the :22 mark):

Spoofing Sweet Brownhere’s Queen Latifah as Brown, Barkhad Abdi as a young Barak Obama, Adam Driver and Matt Damon (again, jump to :22):

Things just get more absurd as you tumble down this rabbit hole. Next is Ben Kingsley, Gary Oldman, Mandy Patinkin and Christoph Waltz with Kevin Spacey as Ameowadeus, which of course is Amadeus meets ">Keyboard Cat (at :22):

And finally we have the ever-adorable Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Samuel L. Jackson and Seth Rogan giving the “3-D musical hallucination” double parody of David after dentist and Double rainbow (jump to :22):
