YMMV / Key & Peele

  • Ear Worm:
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • This spoof of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers uses Zords that resemble NOT the dino ones, but the ones in Choujin Sentai Jetman, which would have been adapted instead.
    • Keegan-Michael Key used to host The Planet's Funniest Animals. He's like the black Bob Saget! And then there's clips like this...
    • Barack Obama shouting out to Key and Peele about three months after this.
      • Taken to the next logical conclusion here.
    • Speaking of which, Key as Luther was intended as a Meaningful Name... and now we have Peele as the actual Luther. Take That!, One Steve Limit!
      • The shout-outs to the Republican primaries in the White House Correspondents dinner seem quite hilarious as of the end of 2015. Luther asked Jeb Bush "Do you really want to do this?" and said that if someone gave $6 million to Ted Cruz as "free speech" then the speech was "I just wasted $6 million." These jokes could now easily be reversed. The lack of reference to Donald Trump (who would announce two months later, but had already hinted at a 2016 run) also seems laughably short-sighted in retrospect.
    • One of the players in the East/West Bowl 2 video is a Hawaiian with a very long name. About a day after the video was posted to Youtube, a Hawaiian woman was denied a drivers license because her name was too long to fit on the license.
    • The Anger Translator skit following the first debate included a line about Mitt Romney getting more reboots than Spider-Man. Since then, Spidey's been rebooted again and will be joining the MCU.
      • And Romney participated in a boxing match with Evander Holyfield.
    • Another one of the "Obama's Anger Translator" skits had Luthor (played by Keegan) brags about playing Halo 4 all day if Obama doesn't get re-elected. Now, of course, he's a part of the Halo universe, voice-acting the lead character for HUNT the TRUTH, a Viral Marketing campaign for Halo 5.
    • One sketch is about '70s funk music and the tendency towards Word Salad Lyrics - "Uptown Funk" would prove that this trope was far from dead.
    • In the "Obama Raps" sketch, a rapper in the street says "I'm the boss and the king!", after which Obama (played by Peele) pulls up in his limo, takes the mic and says "I'm the leader of the Free World" and drops the mic. At the 2016 White House Correspondents Dinner, Obama's last dinner as POTUS, President Obama ended his speech with a mic drop, saying "Obama out!".
    • One of the funniest Key & Peele skits is one where terrorists bemoan that the TSA's dumb (to us) policies are actually stopping them from carrying out attacks. In Jordan Peele's Get Out, Rodney, a TSA agent, comes to Chris's (the protagonist's) rescue at the end. TSA saves the day once again.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Nicole Parker in the Les MisÚrables one breaks out some serious singing pipes.
  • Paranoia Fuel: Luther: "I got Tweets fo' yo' ass! Y'all best follow me... or I'll follow YOU!"
  • Squick: Obama trolling Republicans leads to one of the older ones cutting off his own tongue. Like, WHOA.
    • In the dubstep sketch, when the music makes Key freak out and mutilate himself by pulling out a tooth and ripping off one of his fingernails.
    • "Soul Food", wherein two friends constantly try to one-up each other by ordering more extreme varieties of down-home cooking; while their demands start off delicious enough, if decidedly unhealthy, they quickly escalate into repulsively inedible fare (and, by the end, cannibalism).
  • Tear Jerker: Wendell's rant to his fake "son" Stimpy in the "Superman Bed" sketch.
  • Unfortunate Implications:
    • Invoked and weaponised - both Key and Peele are from interracial families (white mom/black dad, though Jordan Peele grew up with a white mom and never knew his biological father), making disciplining the child in public a little difficult...
    • Discussed in another standup bit, about the classic song "Baby It's Cold Outside", before introducing their own version.
  • The Woobie: Wendell.
