What's better than finding out that Larry David and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are distantly related? Watching the two men find out they're distantly related.

PBS' "Finding Your Roots" released a clip of its Season 4 premiere on Tuesday, showcasing the remarkable moment David and Sanders discovered they were distant cousins.

"What the hell?!" David screamed.

"You're kidding!" Sanders said, looking especially stunned. "This true?"

It's true.

David played Sanders on "Saturday Night Live" during the 2016 election cycle. Their striking resemblances were on full display when Sanders stopped by the show and the duo appeared together in a sketch.

David leaked the news that he was distantly related to Sanders over the summer. It was supposed to be kept secret until the season premiere of "Finding Your Roots," but David said he was happy to learn about the connection.
