It even features Liev Schreiber.

Like a true sketch comedian, longtime Saturday Night Live cast member Taran Killam is marking his departure from the show with a farewell parody video.

Killam formally announced back in August that he won't be returning for his seventh season, but he saved a special personal goodbye for this week: a parody of HBO's Hard Knocks he posted to Twitter Wednesday. It's called “Live Knocks: Saying Goodbye to SNL.” 

Liev Schreiber, who narrates the actual HBO documentary series, even  leant his services to the parody, which also pokes fun at Killam's new movie, Brother Nature. 

Killam will also be starring in his own Showtime comedy pilot with fellow departing castmate Jay Pharoah.
