Jamie Foxx and Jay Pharoah do hilarious celebrity impressions on Thursday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show.” The “White Famous” stars show off a wide range of impressions, imitating the likes of Kanye West, Jay Z, Oprah Winfrey, Pharrell Williams and Barack Obama. Watch the video below!

Both Foxx and Pharoah are known for their incredible and spot-on impersonations of different celebrities, prompting the talk show host to create a brand-new game which puts their skills to the test and helps to raise money for hurricane relief. As part of the challenge, Cheerios will donate $1,000 to Foxx’s Hurricane Harvey relief fund for each completed celebrity impression.

DeGeneres kicks off the game by telling the pair, bizarrely, to impersonate Barack Obama on a nude beach with Beyonce. Pharoah, taking on the role of the former president, says in a shockingly perfect accent, “I’ve been observing, I’ve been observing that booty, for a long time. I would tell you Jay Z is very lucky, but you can’t say no to the presidential package.”

Next, Foxx and the “Saturday Night Live” alum do an amusing impression of both Oprah Winfrey and Jay Z selling cookies to girl scouts. Hilariously, the “Django Unchained” actor imitates Winfrey’s excitable hand gestures, yelling at the audience, “Cookies! Everyone gets the cookies! Everyone look underneath your seats!” Pharoah adds, “If they look under their seats, they’re probably going to get a copy of 4:44.” And finally, impersonating Kanye West buying a used car, Pharoah quips in the rapper’s voice, “You ain’t gonna put me in no Ford Focus, that ain’t gonna happen.” Watch the full video below!
