Comedian and actress Tina Fey made her last-ever“Late Show with David Letterman” appearance on Thursday (May 7), and she had a special surprise for the host.

Having appeared as a “Late Show guest” 20 times “because I live nearby and people cancel a lot,” Fey says she always likes to dress up for him, but all of that is about to end. “What am I gonna wear a dress for Jimmy [Kimmel]? That’s creepy. He’s like my brother. I’m gonna wear like special underwear for James Corden? That’s not gonna happen.”

To commemorate the occasion, Fey literally gave Letterman the dress off her back — right there on the spot, leaving her stripped down to her Spanx, which had a special goodbye message written on them, along with a #lastdressever hashtag.

“I don’t know if you’re aware of the contraptions that are under here. It’s almost medical,” Fey says. “The next time you see me I’m going to be playing charades in a Slanket.”

Well, he — and the rest of America — are now. It’s no Drew Barrymore flashing her breasts for Letterman’s birthday, but it’s definitely a close second.
