I don’t mean to sound crass but this Scream promo, filled with over-the-top deaths of MTV stars set to Rilo Kiley, is the best thing MTV’s done in a while.

MTV’s willingness to “kill off” the beautiful, young casts of their most popular shows, including Teen Wolf, Awkward, Ridiculousness, and Faking It, is both hilarious and completely in tone with the original film’s tongue-in-cheek sensibility. The use of Rilo Kiley’s wonderfully melancholy “It Just Is” is a perfect way to cap off all the cheekiness “…cause everybody dies.”

The actual trailer for the series felt a bit lackluster, but here’s hoping the show is as fun as this promo. MTV’s Scream premieres Tuesday, June 30th.
