Fresh off his Oscar win for “Get Out,” Jordan Peele returned to his “Key & Peele” roots by using his Barack Obama impersonation to send an important reminder about fake news.
The video, which was made by BuzzFeed — Peele’s brother-in-law, Jonah Peretti, is the company’s CEO — with the tongue in cheek title “You Won’t Believe What Obama Says In This Video!” starts with what seems to be a formal address by the former president.
“We’re entering an era in which our enemies can make it look like anyone is saying anything at any point in time, even if that person would never say those things,” Obama says. “For instance, they can have me say things like…Killmonger was right!”
But of course, its a clever lip sync trick with Obama’s voice being provided by Peele, who famously played Obama in the “Anger Translator” series he did with Keegan Michael-Key on Comedy Central’s “Key & Peele.”
