If you were busy ringing in the new year, you might have missed Chris Rock's first promo for the 2016 Oscars, which aired on New Year's Eve.

"Much like New Year’s Eve, it’ll be a night that ends with a lot of drunk, disappointed people swearing they’ll do better next year," the funny man joked in the 16-second promo.

Rock, who took over the hosting duties for the 88th annual Academy Awards from last year's Neil Patrick Harris, also posted the promo on Twitter.

"There will always be 3 constants," he wrote. "Death, taxes and the Oscars. Hope all 3 don't happen to me this year. #Oscars"

This will be the comedian's second time hosting the Oscars. He previously hosted the 77th Academy Awards in 2005.

The 88th Academy Awards will air at 7 p.m. ET on Feb. 28, 2016 on ABC. Nominations will be announced on Jan. 14.
