A man plays some country tunes for his new neighbor, but they disagree about the music’s subtext.
About Key & Peele:
Key & Peele showcases the fearless wit of stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele as the duo takes on everything from “Gremlins 2” to systemic racism. With an array of sketches as wide-reaching as they are cringingly accurate, the pair has created a bevy of classic characters, including Wendell, the players of the East/West Bowl and President Obama’s Anger Translator.

    Key and Peele are usually comical geniuses, but sometimes they repeat tired tropes... this is one of 'em. Most of their stuff is awesome, though.

    Peele is such a great actor. He plays so many different types of people so perfectly. My favorite is the unreasonably smug authority figure that makes insane demands of his rightfully disgruntled subordinate (Key) Then he pulls off totally realistic characters like this, while Key plays the insane character. They're both goddam geniuses
