Charles Barkley hosted Saturday Night Live and the results are exactly what you'd expect: Hilarity all around, particularly during a skit parodying the TNT's Inside the NBA. Barkley, however, didn't play himself, instead playing newcomer Shaq while subtly picking apart his co-host. He even donned a massive beard for the occasion.
And though Barkley was his usual self, Kenan Thompson, playing the role of Barkley, stole the show. His Barkley impression was tremendous -- well enough that he could fill in for Chuck on TNT without missing a beat. All told, the skit probably makes for some fun awkward moments on the TNT set whenever the crew sees each other again.
Barkley, as Shaq, kind of stays out of the way, only popping in for the occasional one-liner throughout while fake Kenny, fake Chuck and fake EJ carry the skit. And while we're at it, might as well toss this frightening screenshot in here.
You'll never be able to unsee this. You're welcome.
