Short of the Week: “A Zombie Extra’s First Day on Set”
Oct 2, 2020

Many film fans were introduced to Jordan Peele through his masterpiece Get Out, which earned him an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. But longtime fans of his were likely introduced via the Key & Peele show, which aired for five seasons on Comedy Central and co-starred Keegan-Michael Key. (Fun fact: Both of them are Academy members.)

Fortunate for all of us laying on our couches scrolling through click-bait, Key and Peele still post hilarious short skits on their YouTube page. Enjoy one of the videos we found quite amusing: A Zombie Extra's First Day on Set.
