Key & Peele is set to return with its fourth season in exactly two weeks, and the latest promo serves as a special treat for the sketch comedy show’s long-time fans. Taking a visual cue from the classic music video for “Mo Money Mo Problems,” Obama and his anger translator Luther team up to hype the show’s return by rattling off a series of callbacks to some of the its most well-known sketches.

Though the video centers around favorite characters from the last few seasons, what little we do know about Season 4 suggests that they had no problem coming up with fresh material: At Comic-Con over the summer, the duo previewed a sketch starring Jordan Peele as Stan Lee, who pitches a series of new comic book characters, each one more offensive than the last. From the looks of it, the comedic duo haven’t lost their knack for biting, hilarious satire.
