SHARE WATCH: Key & Peele do commercial, improv for Super Bowl Sunday

Months after their Comedy Central show ended, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are still making up characters and will roll out two new ones on Super Bowl Sunday.

In a commercial for the web-hosting service Squarespace that will air during Sunday’s game, the Chicago-trained comic actors play a pair of aspiring sportscasters who set up an online platform to showcase their skills. As part of the promotion, Key and Peele plan to improviselive, uninhibited commentary in character throughout the Super Bowl.

Here’s the commercial:

Football was a favorite topic on “Key & Peele,” which last winter aired an Emmy-nominated Super Bowl special dense with satire of contemporary sports. In onepopular recurring feature, the East/West Bowl, the two stars would play dozens of football players introducing themselves with silly names likeDonkey Teeth and Hingle McCringleberry.

The “Key & Peele” finale aired in September, and the actors next co-star in the action comedy “Keanu,” opening April 29.
