In this new, perfect “Drunk History” clip (in a long line of perfect “Drunk History” clips), we find comedian Crissle West going hard with her drunken retelling of Harriet Tubman’s days as a spy for the Union army during the Civil War. 

The video, in keeping with “Drunk History” tradition, overlays the audio of Crissle’s down and dirty telling of Tubman’s “real stealth operation” with Octavia Spencer’s reenactment of the story, which leads her to take an “army full of bad bitches” on a full recon mission to free 750 slaves. The results, as per usual, are incredible. 

Watch the glorious, glorious video above.
