Watch This Tribute to Community’s Now-Dead Pierce Hawthorne

Well, it’s official. On last night’s Community, the show finally acknowledged Chevy Chase’s departure from the show by mentioning that his character, the always politically incorrect Pierce Hawthorne, had died of a heart attack. To be honest, the farewell didn’t seem sufficient enough for such a major figure in the series, so we put together a little video tribute to the guy who had everything, knew very little, hurt a lot of feelings, yet always managed to pull out some decency in the end. See you at the crossroads, big guy.
