Larry David's "SNL" Impression Of Bernie Sanders Was Obviously Awesome

The presidential candidate and his lookalike Curb Your Enthusiasm star inspired a social media movement to see if they were actually the same person.

Seinfeld creator and Saturday Night Live alum Larry David appeared on Saturday’s show as presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, a pair whose physical similarities spawned a slew of comparisons since the first Democratic debate.

Like, it's quite scary...

David, who was a writer for the show in the ‘80s, made his surprise appearance as Sanders alongside SNL favorite Alec Baldwin, who played Sanders’ presidential competitor Jim Webb.

Don't get on Jim Webb's bad side. #SNL

Fans were loving it.

When Larry David was on SNL he got one sketch on the air. 30 years later he's Bernie Sanders:

If Bernie Sanders were actually Larry David, even I'd vote for him

Sanders was a crowd-pleaser at Tuesday's debate after telling Hillary Clinton that "America is sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails," before shaking her hand.

Obviously, SNL's resident Clinton impersonator Kate McKinnon reenacted the bonding moment.

Still thinking about Larry David as @BernieSanders. #SNL

After the debate, Sanders' distinct New York accent and white-haired, glasses-wearing appearance resonated with David fans.

Close your eyes listening to Bernie Sanders and he sounds exactly like Larry David/George Steinbrenner from Seinfeld. #DemDebate

Has anyone ever seen Bernie Sanders and Larry David in the same place? #DemDebate

I'm not totally convinced that Bernie Sanders and Larry David aren't the same person. #DemDebate

Fans also couldn’t help but reference David’s HBO show Curb Your Enthusiasm, including this debate/Curb mashup dubbed “Bern Your Enthusiasm.” Enjoy.
