Julia Louis-Dreyfus just might have the best friends

I can only empathize with those who are currently battling their way uphill on their respective fights against cancer, but what I can safely guess is that, if anything, it's important to have a good support system in place while one fights. This is most definitely the case with Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who recently posted a video her costars, Sam Richardson and Matt Walsh, sent her to get her pumped up for her third round of chemo. It is, in a word, badass.

Louis-Dreyfus posted the video to her Twitter on Nov. 9, and it looks like her costars decided to get her pumped up for her third round of chemo the best way they knew how: with a little comedy. I don't know about you, but I'd most certainly choose the comedy route, especially in moments like that.

You can almost feel Louis-Dreyfus beaming from the other side of the screen and imagine her huge smile as she inevitably watched Richardson and Walsh run their silly but super-sweet sketch for her. The video naturally got her psyched and she wasn't afraid to share it, as well as the video, with us. "2 of my darling Bozos (love them so much) psyche me up for 3rd chemo today," she wrote. "And guess what? It worked! I’m psyched AF."

In it, Richardson and Walsh get together to find inspirational quotes to give to Louis-Dreyfus before her chemo treatment. Unfortunately, the quotes they really zero in on are from super-problematic dudes like Josef Stalin and Harvey Weinstein. Yeah, not exactly inspiring. Then, they just say, "Screw it" and they start singing to the tune of "Eye of the Tiger" in order to get her pumped up. It is, in a second word, brilliant.

This isn't the first time Louis-Dreyfus' Veep costars have circled the wagons and chosen to go the funny route in order to lift her spirits. In late October, around the time she revealed her cancer diagnosis, Veep stars Timothy Simons and Tony Hale put together their own funny video in which they sang Katy Perry's "Roar" while Hale, acting like Louis-Dreyfus, faux-beat up Simons, who was playing the role of cancer. It is, in a third word, delightful.
