Hader stares him in the eyes: “Jabba the Hutt during death.”

Yes, it’s now public knowledge that Hader’s true talent lies in impersonating the deaths of iconic Star Wars creatures. He did two last night on Conan: Jabba the Hutt’s and that of a tauntaun, which you can see GIF’d here. 

As for his Jabba impersonation, it seems as if this is the best screengrab to pull.
