Key & Peele – Dad’s Hollywood Secret


– HELLO, EVERYONE. I’M JOSEPH CARMICHAEL. OTIS IS–WAS MY FATHER. BUT WE ARE NOT HERE TODAY
TO MOURN HIS DEATH, BUT TO CELEBRATE HIS LIFE. WE KNEW OTIS AS A TEACHER,
A COMMUNITY LEADER, A ROLE MODEL, A HUSBAND,
AND A FATHER. NOW, I THOUGHT
IT WOULD BE NICE TO SHARE SOMETHING ABOUT HIM
Y’ALL MAY NOT HAVE KNOWN. WHEN MY FATHER WAS YOUNGER, HE WAS AN ACTOR
IN HOLLYWOOD. GOING THROUGH MY DAD’S THINGS, I FOUND THIS REEL OF HIS WORK
AS AN ACTOR. I HAVEN’T SEEN IT YET, BUT I THOUGHT
IT WOULD BE FUN TO WATCH, HERE WITH ALL OF YOU TODAY. THANK YOU. – [gasps]
WHERE ARE MY PIES? RIBBLES, WHERE ARE THE PIES
I PUT ON MY WINDOWSILL? – WHY, I DON’T KNOW,
MRS. CARUTHERS. WHY WOULD ANYONE
WANT TO STEAL ONE OF YOUR DELICIOUS
BLUEBERRY PIES? – [snaps]
HEY. SEE TO IT YOU SHINE
THOSE SHOES UP NICE, BOY. – YES, SIR,
YOU BEST BE BELIEVING I WILL! I’LL SHINE YOUR SHOES BLACKER
THAN MY MAMA’S BOOTY. [all gasp] [laughs] [yelling] OOGA-BOOGA! OOGA-BOOGA SHOO!
OOGA-BOOGA SHOO! OOGA-BOOGA!
– OH, HELL NO! – OOGA-BOOGA SHOO!
[yelling] – IN 1964,
MY FATHER MARCHED WITH MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.
AND HARRY BELAFONTE ALONG WITH OTHER RENOWNED
CIVIL RIGHTS LEADERS.

    I love it, because it reflects the reality of how people are willing to sell their souls for a modicum of success and once they get it they try to rewrite history to reflect their ego's perceived character and reputation. The propaganda NEVER matches the reality.

    THE BEST PART OF THIS JOKE….is the comment section. Cause nobody got the joke…-.- it's not about THE REEL!
    The guy was like the ULTRA BLACK LIVES MATTER LEADER…hes marching with Martin Luther King and others blabla…but its only in the very end he says it.

    Вот это отличная актёрская игра! Очень естественно, в отличие от этих "прогрессивных роликов" (дегенеративных)

    Michelle Alexander writes about minstrelsy in The New Jim Crow. Blacks went to minstel shows, according to her, in part to see black performers in stage at all and also the actors made good money doing it which enabled them to protect their families and have economic freedom. (Pp 173-175) in post Reconstruction.

    So they’re ashamed of him because he was an actor in 1930s Hollywood and did with only 1% of people wish they could do, and had to do some embarrassing roles? At least he had his dignity Internet the fuck any Hollywood (jewish) producers, Was he supposed to systematically changed any perceived racism from Hollywood at the time? The skit makes no sense
