Guys, isn't it soooo sexy when your girlfriend wears your shirt? And doesn't mind putting on your sweaty baseball cap, because it makes her feel closer to you? And uses your toothbrush? And then cuts her hair exactly like yours and shoves handfuls of creatine down her throat so you both weigh the same? Adorable, right?

That's the premise of the latest Inside Amy Schumer sketch, in which Schumer takes the weirdness of guys loving it when girls wear their clothes to its logical conclusion: turning ourselves into our boyfriends, because really, it's all about them.

In a music video parody entitled "Closer to You," Schumer goes from the girlfriend who just loooves smelling your shirts to the girlfriend who just loooves yelling at 14-year-olds on online video games. Final lyric: "I'm not here because there's just you!"

So cute! Watch the full sketch below, or on tonight's episode.
