The awkward Uber trip has become so universally relatable, it’s joining the Saturday Night Live canon, along with the uncomfortable elevator ride, and the crowded subway car.

In a skit with host Aziz Ansari, SNL spoofed the kind of ride we’ve all experienced — where one or both parties is trying way too hard.

Both Ansari and SNL’s Bobby Moynihan play characters trying to improve their Uber ratings and boy do they pull out all the stops. The skit parodies everything you might see in an Uber gone wrong, from vaguely racist assumptions about each other’s musical tastes to gnarly car mints to a very ill-conceived mutual massage.

But it does have a happy ending … sort of.
