Key & Peele team with 2 Chainz to form fake wedding band
Arizonans who are planning their nuptials need only look at one potential wedding band: Absorption.
The faux six-piece wedding band is fronted by sketch-comedy kings Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key and offers a unique service. “We take popular songs and we tailor-make them to your wedding,” Key says, “so they can only be performed for your wedding.”
“What makes Absorption so attractive,” Peele explains, “is that people know the song. But they don’t know what we’re going to do with it.
The promise doesn’t fall flat: “Black Betty” becomes “Black Wedding”; Macklemore’s “Same Love” becomes a ballad about two Chrises keeping each other warm; and Rihanna’s encouraging love song “We Found Love” moving its setting to a “homeless place.”
Going for the deluxe edition adds wedding party master and indifferent session saxophonist, Master Collaborator (2 Chainz), who’s there to cash in his $75 per 30 minutes. Watch the ad above, but be prepared for disappointment that this band doesn’t exist.
