We don’t know much about Mascots, the upcoming Netflix mockumentary from mockumentary visionary Christopher Guest, but this new teaser sets the stage pretty cleanly. Basically, the movie will center around the competition to win The Gold Fluffy, the most prestigious honor in the world of sports—or at least in the world of sports mascots. We don’t get to see Jane Lynch, John Michael Higgins, or any of the other usual Christopher Guest players (sans Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara) who will appear in Mascots, but you don’t really need to see clips of people saying funny stuff to convince you to watch a Christopher Guest movie, right? You just need the title, a few lines about the premise, and a release date. In that sense, this teaser is wildly successful.

Mascots will hit Netflix on October 13.
