When Inside Amy Schumer aired last night, viewers were treated to the world debut of #girlyoudontneedmakeup, a hilarious, parody music video. On its own it’s awesome, but what it inspired on Twitter is a truly beautiful thing.

Allow us to set the scene:

After finishing her morning routine, Amy’s home is suddenly invaded by 4 coiffed members of a One Direction-esque boy band who encourage her to drop her beauty regimen and embrace her inner glow.

Heartthrob #1 sings, “you don’t need no lipstick, you don’t need no blush, cause you got that inner natural glow.” Then, in perfect synchronicity, the fellas all chime in with the chorus, “Girl you don’t need no makeup, you’re perfect when you wake up, just walk around like that all day.”

The confidence boosting serenade gets even better when Heartthrob #3 urges Amy to, “wash that lovely face off in the sink.” A giddy Amy complies, but when she emerges fresh-faced and au naturale, the love-fest comes to a screeching halt and the man-children’s tune suddenly changes… “Hold up girl, we spoke too soon with this whole no makeup thing.” Dun, dun, dun…

SO WATCH and then check out what happened after the video aired…


30 minutes before air time,  Amy Tweeted this…

In a 3-Tweet message, this is how Amy responded to the tidal wave of Tweets that flooded her feed…

“I have been brought to tears with all the strong, badass, incredible women tonight. In jungles, jumping out of planes, holding their babies and mothers hands. All the strong lovely men who tweeted too. We are all different and beautiful. Let’s waste no time stressin bout looks. We are sisters and fighters and laughers and happy strong women. Smile at yourself in the mirror girl. much love!”
