Is it Jordan Peele or is it James Brown?
The Key & Peele alum has taken it upon himself to recreate Brown's infamous interview "Drunk James Brown" from Sonya Live in L.A. in 1988, and the results are uncanny. Peele, who has become best known for his parodies, is identical to the "Godfather of Soul," who was meant to discuss the allegations that he abused his wife and his upcoming tour. Instead, however, Brown acted erratic. He got up off camera to shimmy, he sang at random moments and repeatedly cut off questions.
What was meant to be a serious interview that took place after Brown was released on bail quickly disintegrated into a strange joke, and now Peele is here to add some humor to what was meant to be a heavy moment. The Keanu star describes the historic moment—and his impression—as "nutsoid," and we have to agree.
