I’m Retired

The American nation is in a state of turmoil.  Government, armed forces and security agencies are all confounded. There is only one man they can turn to for help but years ago he retired and disappeared in to the backwoods. Yet an army general manages to track him down.

This short skit takes the old tired Hollywood action movie starter and turns it on its heads with panache. It is from Key & Peele, a US comedy show which premiered this year stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele and was directed by Peter Atencio. As someone who lives outside of the US I had not heard of this particular comedic pairing and found this most amusing. You can see a whole lot more of Key & Peele on Atencio’s Vimeo page.
