Just like most of America’s workforce, the deputies of Reno 911! have turned to Zoom as a way to connect amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The spot, released by Quibi on Wednesday, shows the cast testing their very first Zoom briefing in an effort to comply with social distancing measures.

But between the coworkers whose faces are too close to the camera, those with outlandish backgrounds, and the one who can’t figure out how to mute, it’s clear that the team is made up of people who have never video chatted before.

Throughout the rest of this week, the cast will continue “testing out” Zoom briefings at 8 a.m. PT. The spots come ahead of the series’ reboot on Quibi after the original series concluded on Comedy Central in 2009.

Quibi officially launched on Monday with over 50 titles and was installed by 300,000 users across Apple and Android devices, according to mobile analytics group Sensor Tower. It’s currently running a 90-day free trial for those who sign up through April; after that, a subscription costs $4.99 with ads or $7.99 without ads.
