We think Chris Hardwick does a pretty awesome job hosting the post-Walking Dead after show, Talking Dead, on AMC every Sunday night at 10 p.m. ET, and if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then comedian Will Ferrell is a fan of Chris’s work as well.
Per Vulture, the Saturday Night Live alum poked fun at Chris and his show @midnight in a new spoof video. In the video below Will plays Chad Softwick, a Chris-esque character who hosts @midnight's spin-off, @midday.
The video starts with Chris introducing a grandpa-sweater-and-khaki-clad Chad. Mr. Softwick promises that the spin-off won’t offend anyone, because “Everything we do will have an inspirational message,” he states. “Every single person is a hero,” he continued as he was met with applause, “just for getting out of bed and taking the day on.”
In an effort to preview @midday, Chad challenges three contestants to a rousing game of “Cute or Too Cute”, in which the competing comedians must decide if a photo is, you guessed it, cute or too cute. As Chad announces before the game begins, “There are no wrong answers.”
The contestants get a peek at some serious cuteness and rack up a ton of “hoints” (a hug-point combo, of course), but when Chris suggests that the audience might be a little too edgy for a game like this, Chad has a LOL-worthy freak out that only Will Ferrell could deliver.

The Walking Dead Season 4 airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET and Talking Dead immediately follows at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.
