By now, we hope you've had an hour out of your weekend to watch (and potentially rewatch) the Dave Chappelle-hosted episode of Saturday Night LiveAny system of metrics will tell you that it was one of the late-night programs all-timers. Truly one for the books. But it wasn't just A Tribe Called Quest's heart-mending performances that made this a historic one, or that opening monologue that had all of us in our feelings.

No, perhaps that single most glaring piece of greatness came in a revival of sorts, where the host wrangled some of his most iconic Chappelle's Show characters (Tyrone Biggums, Silky Johnson, Lil Jon, Clayton Bigsby and, of course, Chuck Taylor) for a take on The Walking Dead that doubled as both a give-the-people-what-they-want moment and an opportunity to finally lay these fools to rest (though, as a friend pointed out, there's an element of retribution in there as well.)

So if you're still having a tough time digesting the fact that the nation's president elect is a life-sized cheeto, allow Dave Chappelle and a full roster of Chappelle's Show characters to bring a smile to your face, just when you need it most. Watch Dave Chappelle's take on The Walking Dead down below and pray with us all that this is the beginning of the comedic unicorn's next phase.
