Admit it: As much as you love watching them scheme, plot, and chicken dance in Arrested Development, you wouldn’t really want to be a member of the Bluth family. Even the best of them end up warped, corrupted, and pretty darn miserable; see, for example, how pathetic Michael has become by the beginning of season 4.

That said, it would be pretty cool to have your life narrated by Ron Howard, Bluth family-style — and thanks to Netflix, a group of lucky Twitter users has had the chance to experience just that. One week ago, the streaming service began posting a series of videos featuring Howard reading tweets tagged with #ADNarrates; yesterday, it posted a compilation of those shorter videos.

The fun thing here is that Howard doesn’t always read the tweets verbatim. In several cases, he uses them as a jumping-off point for a riff that wouldn’t sound out of place on the show itself. Example: User Camille Nanavati writes, “I wish I had a #burger #ADNarrates.” Howard says, “Out of all the things Camille could have had an Oscar-winning director narrate, she chose lunch.”
