Chance the Rapper and Kenan Thompson put on the best Run-DMC impersonation to celebrate President Barack Obama's last Christmas in the White House during their Saturday Night Live sketch Saturday. Chance and Thompson used the group's "Christmas in Hollis" for inspiration for their "Jingle Barack":

"We still got Barack/So you know what that means/We shooting some hoops in high-waist jeans," Chance and Thompson rapped. "So, 'tis the season/Let's spread some cheer/It's the last Christmas with Barack still here."


"This year I bought four Christmas trees/Stockpiled all the Home Alone DVDs," Chance, who was the musical guest of the evening, continued. "I got batteries, canned food, everything I need/There will probably never be another Christmas Eve/Binge-drinking eggnog like I don't care/Imma hurt myself before we lose Obamacare/Say goodbye to Barack/Say goodbye to December/Before a new holiday called 'Regular Winter.’”
