In honor of Equal Pay Day, Netflix cut a new trailer for Tuca & Bertie, a show about 30-year-old bird women Tuca, a cocky, care-free toucan played by Tiffany Haddish) and Bertie, an anxious, daydreaming songbird (Ali Wong).

Although the show doesn’t seem to be exclusively about workplace politics, it was a smart tie-in on Netflix’s part to get in on the conversation in a way that doesn’t feel forced.
