Shadowhunters Video: The Cast Faces Off in a Fierce Battle of... Puppetry?

The stars of ABC Family/Freeform‘s supernatural phenomenon-to-be are taking a brief break from hunting shadows — to puppet them.

In a hilariously awkward behind-the-scenes video from the Shadowhunters set, obtained exclusively by TVLine, the stars attempt to make shadow puppets — revealing a lot about themselves in the process.

In this reporter’s humble opinion, Matthew Daddario (who plays Alec Lightwood) and Harry Shum, Jr. (Magnus Bane) pretty much steal the show here. So if this whole “TV” thing doesn’t work out, we can always keep our fingers crossed for a cross-country “Malec” shadow puppet tour. (Don’t roll your eyes at me. You’d go!)

Isaiah Mustafah (Luke) and Dominic Sherwood (Jace) also deserve honorable mentions for their respective Batman and duck-dog puppets. (Side note: Was anyone else expecting Mustafa to do a wolf?)
