Keanu: Key and Peele give shelter cats absurd names
Over the course of Key & Peele’s five-season run, the comedy duo produced plenty of now-iconic sketches, but perhaps one of their funniest and most popular recurring bits was the East-West College Bowl, which was nothing but Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele introducing themselves as football players with increasingly ridiculous names (and increasingly ridiculous wigs).
Now, with Keanu hitting theaters this weekend, Key and Peele have decided to not just promote their movie but promote cat adoption, too, repurposing the East-West College Bowl sketch format to spotlight a few adoptable cats.
The duo recently stopped by Tree House Humane Society in Chicago to help raise funds for the shelter. While they were there, they bestowed a few ridiculous names on some of the shelter’s cats, including Fieldgar, Mr. Higgabonton Crumplier III, Guripantance Mousebreath, and Eighteen Lives.
Keanu opens Friday.
