And who were those two Black Americans? Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben. As an ad exec played by Alec Baldwin tried to explain why the famous mascots, played by Maya Rudolph and Kenan Thompson, could not continue to represent their brands during this time, the pair tried to defend themselves by throwing the Allstate guy —played by Chappelle — under the bus.

While Chappelle didn’t do much costume-wise to look like Dennis Haysbert, the comedian did a pitch-perfect impression of his voice, defending himself and joking that he’s better known as the guy from Waiting to Exhale.

The moment that got everyone to crack, though, came when Pete Davidson showed up dressed as Count Chocula, trying to convince the firing panel that he’s not Black, he’s just made of chocolate. In one of the night's most memorable moments, Chappelle broke the fourth wall to say, “Seriously, America, look at Pete Davidson’s lips.”
