Chance the Rapper's Thanksgiving song goes out to all the weirdos

Chicago-native Chance the Rapper hosted "Saturday Night Live" this week, and he brought down the house with his hilarious take on sports commentary. He channelled Mariah Carey to sing an original "Thanksgiving song" about spending the holiday with your weird relatives, which was a part of his opening monologue. The video begins as a familiarly wistful lament to a past flame that's moved on, but it's not until the song's first chorus that you realize who they're singing to: former President Barack Obama.

"I'm in hell, dreaming about you and Michelle", the song continues. "Like really bad, like World War bad, like nuclear bad".

I think we live in a time where people are ashamed to say how much they love Drake or enjoy what he does, and I'm totally rebelling against that.

Host Chance the Rapper joined cast members Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd to form De-Von-Tre, a flawless throwback to groups like Boyz II Men and Jodeci, right down to the generously wide-legged matching suits.

Like other music hosts (see: Adam Levine, Justin Timberlake) - there is no doubt that Chance the Rapper will be asked back to do the job once (or thrice) more. "I mean, if she wanted to?"

This isn't the first time Chance has crooned about Obama on SNL. Chance also attended the Obama Foundation's inaugural summit earlier this month.
