Watch Desus & Mero Pitch Jordan Peele Parodies Of 'The Avengers,' 'Back To The Future' & More
The interaction between the three also serves as a reminder of Peele’s comedic chops.
Jordan Peele recently appeared on Desus & Mero, where he discussed the differences between Get Out and its follow-up, Us, before being pitched by the comedic duo on several movie ideas they hoped to bring to life.
First, the duo pitches a movie called Spookybucks, where “two males from a borough in New York City…get a show off of their podcast and then they just spend the money that they get from the company…but the money’s haunted,” Desus says.
“Does the money that’s haunted buy you bad product?” Peele asks to which Mero replies “No, it’s like regular shit but then it turns bad.”
“Like, I buy a pack of Newports and I get cancer,” Desus says.
“That’s real life, that’s not haunted…,” Peele responds.
From there, the duo gets into movie ideas that are parodies of films that already exist, even though they don’t see the ideas as parodies. Among the films parodied include The Avengers, Back to the Future, and The Babadook.
Ultimately, Peele ends up going with the Back to the Future parody, whose parody title is so explicit that I can’t bring myself to type it (I would however watch the actual parody).
Peele’s Us is currently out in theaters. The film has set an opening weekend record for an original horror film, earning $70.2 million its opening weekend.
