Watch the Kardashians minus all the Kardashians

Removing all the Kardashians and Kris Jenner from Keeping Up with the Kardashians unsurprisingly results in a better show. It also results in a few surreal minutes of Bruce Jenner talking to and interacting with himself.

The video, edited by Alexander Pyle to remove Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kris, and other kast members of the E! reality show, attributes its concept to Ethan Sedelmeier. As The AV Club notes, it’s very reminiscent of Garfield Minus Garfield, the fantastic edited version of the comic strip that removes its feline star “in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle.”

“Existential angst” describes this well. My absolute favorite parts are the silent “coming up” segments; they’re captivating and I don’t know why.
