Unfortunately for Community fans, tonight's episode marks the final appearance of the study group's silly, lovable Troy Barnes, as Donald Glover has departed the series for rather cryptic reasons. In his honor, comedy group Hot Chocolate Party Productions has put together a video mashing up Glover's best-known characters, Troy and his rap persona Childish Gambino.
Backed with the song "sweatpants" from his latest album because the internet, the video makes up for what it lacks in choice Troy Barnes quotes ("If God were edible—not that I'm Catholic—but if it were cool to eat God, he'd be a chicken finger") by including spot-on correlations between Gambino's lyrics and moments from Community.
You'll be missed, Troy.
