Stand up comedian Leslie Jones is in the Olympic spirit!

The Saturday Night Live star spent the weekend live-tweeting as she watched the Pyeongchang Olympic games and her commentary on the gold-winning routine from Canadian ice dancing duo Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir is absolutely hilarious.

“Oh hell, yeah! That is the best version of Roxanne I’ve heard since frick’n Eddie Murphy,” says Jones during the steamy routine that has #VirtueMoir trending on Twitter as the whole world fantasizes about the duo.

And she says what we’re all thinking:

Jones’ colourful commentary is rather refreshing compared to official broadcasts. While maybe not based in fact, we’re pretty amused that she attributes Canada’s success in the sport to our abundance of ice. “They supposed to be good… they supposed to win… they got way more ice than the United States.”

And at this point, we also have more medals than the US too…
