Saturday Night Live fans were stunned when Taran Killam, a six-season veteran of the sketch comedy institution, was unceremoniously released from his contract a year early. Where was the big send-off episode, a.k.a. the SNL equivalent of retiring an athlete's number? Where was the acknowledgement of his time on the show?
While the show has yet to formally acknowledge his—and Jay Pharoah's—departure from the series (and probably never will, to be honest), Killam has gotten to say goodbye to the series the best way he knew how: Via an adorable spoof of HBO's Hard Knocks.
