Vana Dabney and Deirdre Devlin, the masterminds behind Honest Monster, have just dropped a new YouTube sketch that we've been passing around the office to each other and are now passing out to you. See what the comedy duo themselves have to say about the video or just skip down to the video below because honestly, this gif pretty much says it all.

With "Unboxing a Boyfriend," we loved reversing the male gaze and commenting on how often women are objectified. We thought what would the world look like if men were literally objects just for 2 minutes? These days there's an unboxing video for practically everything so we figured why not an "unbox a boyfriend" video? And it was a lot of fun to actually get to name things we wanted in a boyfriend in this extreme way.
