Now this is a show we would actually watch.

VH1, a cable channel that airs cheap pop culture retrospectives as vapid as they are inoffensive, hardly cries out for parody. But somehow, Saturday Night Live’s surreal new digital short pulls it off.

Taking on the tired listicle format of the network’s “Greatest” series, the sketch offers everything you’d expect from a show best watched when you’re stuck at your parents’ house on a rainy afternoon and their Wi-Fi isn’t working—from inane talking head commentary to migraine-inspired background art. Also, we defy you to argue with these rankings.

Our fond congratulations to Snoop Dogg, Jr.—this really was his year.
