Empire stars Gabourey Sidibe and Jussie Smollett aren’t just friends on-screen, the duo are best friends in real life. And when they aren’t on set, they’re filming funny viral videos that show their sense of humor and lighthearted personalities.

We imagine there are tons of great moments Gabby and Jussie don’t post on social media, but luckily for us, they share just enough to keep us wanting more.

Check out their most adorable moments, below:

When he wanted some of that “a**”

That time he made her his #WCW

When he channeled his inner Mr. Clean

That time they thought it was a good idea to pose like they were at prom

When she recorded him singing B*tch Better Have My Money

When he planted this sweet kiss on her cheek

When they danced the night away at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards
