Okay, this might be a pretty bold claim to make about a franchise like American Horror Story, one that has a reputation for some pretty jaw-droppingly impressive teasers and trailers. But the recent teaser for FX on Hulu's spinoff American Horror Stories might be the most oddly addictive one yet. So it takes place on the set of one of the earlier teasers, but not quite because Rubber Man and Rubber Woman are clearly in character. From there, it's like an awkward "wearing the same outfit at the club" vibe between the two as Rubber Woman explains the difference between the two shows.

Well, at least a few of those questions will begin being answered this week.
Matt Bomer as Michael, Gavin Creel as Troy, Sierra McCormick as Scarlett, Belissa Escobedo as Shanti, Paris Jackson as Maya, Kaia Gerber as Ruby, Aaron Tveit as Adam, Merrin Dungey as Dr. Andi Grant, Ashley Martin Carter as Rowena, Selena Sloan as Erin, and Valerie Loo as Nicole is the line-up in play for the two-part season-opener- but it's the following "When Rubber Man Meets Rubber Woman" moment that's all caught up in our fascinations right now:
