NBC Is Sending Leslie Jones To Rio Because Her Twitter Commentary Is Iconic

National treasure Leslie Jones has made the best use of Twitter while watching the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, which kicked off Friday.

The SNL/Ghostbusters star has been sharing videos to the platform, narrating the various, nailbiting races and competitions with humor and pure, earnest delight.

Whether it's "canoe slalom" (yes, that is a thing)...

...swimming...

"Ledeckyyyyyyyy"

...or cheering on the women's gymnastics team...

NBC, who is airing the Olympics, has caught onto Jones' revelatory commentary, and invited the actress/writer/comedian to come on down to Brazil to commentate there.

After a quick deliberation period, Leslie has decided to go join the glory:

Give Leslie her own Olympic show...hell, her own tent. Everyone will want to be there.

God Bless the United States of Leslie Jones.
