While Owen Wilson Dates Himself did not win the 2017 Tribeca Snapchat Shorts competition, Fishbowl wanted to make sure this hilarious concoction receives the proper amount of runner-up love. From the Woody Allen-like jazzy period music to some ego-tastic end credits, it’s a winner.

Conceived by and co-starring Brooklyn actress-comedienne Anna Roisman, the 90-second romantic-comedy riff is most notable for the spot-on vocal impression of the other Wilson (Jared Hacker). Roisman is solid in matching blond wig and nose-piece, but it’s her co-star who steals the show.

The Tribeca Snapchat Shorts competition, sponsored by AT&T, featured five finalists culled from more than 200 entries and was judged by a stacked jury that included Eva Longoria, Andy Cohen, Tracee Ellis Ross and Jason Biggs. The festival for this segment also recruited a quartet of alumni filmmmakers to contribute entries.
