Stand-up comic John Mulaney is hosting Saturday Night Live tonight, the show where he made a name for himself as a writer before moving on to star in his own sitcom and numerous Netflix stand-up specials. And to mark the occasion he’s taken to social media to take us down memory lane. He’s goin’ all the way back to six, maybe even ten years ago. It’s hard to believe, but we had most of the same things then: television, the internet, and worse versions of the same smartphones we use today. It was a much looser time though, a time when the SNL staff dressed up as Mad Men characters to welcome that week’s host Jon Hamm, then got drunk.

Update: Upon request from longtime SNL producer and current Late Night With Seth Meyers executive producer Mike Shoemaker, we have fully annotated this classic image to include the names of the photographed, the years they spent on SNL, and what they’re up to now.
