Doing a parody of the upcoming big-screen Steven Spielberg movie, Lincoln, is a foregone conclusion for Saturday Night Live.

Even more welcome, then, is this extended director’s cut of the short film, written by SNL head writer Seth Meyers. Featuring Aidy Bryant as Mary Todd Lincoln, with Kenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah as emancipated slaves.
