American comic and actor Keegan-Michael Key has reprised his now legendary substitute teacher role from the Comedy Central show of a decade ago, Key & Peele, this time in an ad for streaming service Paramount+.
You’ve no doubt seen the decade-old skit that sees the actor play Mr Garvey, an inner-city substitute teacher who has trouble pronouncing the names of his middle-class white students. If, by some rare chance you haven’t, B&T’s re-run it at the bottom of this article for reference.
In his latest effort to muddle his words, Paramount+ has revived Mr Garvey, this time atop Paramount Mountain, as he once again bumbles his way though a roll call of real and cartoon characters from the streaming service that includes such luminaries as Peppa Pig, Dora the Explorer, and Aaahh!!! Real Monsters‘ Krumm, among others.
Ok, maybe not as funny as the original, but it also comes with a nice nod to the first skit – A-A-Ron or, more to the point, Rams football player, Aaron Donald.
