This is why Chrissy Teigen has 18.9 million followers on Instagram.

Not only does she have an adorable family, a down-to-earth attitude, and a sense of humor, but she also makes a real effort with her posts. On Monday, she shared a gem: a parody of the opening credits of the cheesy, long-running TV rom-com The Love Boat intermixed with scenes and characters from the Bravo reality series Below Deck. This version, called Love Boat: Malibu, starring none other than the model herself, her husband John Legend, and their friends on a yacht.

As Legend’s version of the Love Boat theme song plays in the background, he appears as the captain. Cookbook author Teigen situates herself in the kitchen, where she fills the ship’s position as “chief stew,” or stewardess. Everyone aboard hilariously poses for the camera as their name flashes on the screen, just like actors often did for seemingly every TV show in the ’80s. Some of them imitate the Bravo fan favorite, like when celeb stylist Jen Atkin pretends to get sick over the side of the boat as a nod to the seasick cast member — make that mate — Kasey, on Below Deck Mediterranean.

Teigen joked about the ridiculousness of the clip, but her followers approved.

No word yet on when the spinoff will hit Instagram.
