WATCH: Key and Peele Will Provide Live Commentary of the Super Bowl on Sunday
Only they can't call it "The Super Bowl."
No offense to Jim Nantz and Phil Simms, CBS’ chosen commentators for this weekend’s Super Bowl, but you may want to watch the game on mute. Squarespace is apparently taking a break from sponsoring all of your favorite podcasts to broadcast live in-game commentary courtesy of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.
The comedic pair, who just teased their new film Keanu with a trailer, will appear as Lee and Morris, a pair of would-be sportscasters who use Squarespace to start their own broadcast network. The pair will provide real-time commentary on Sunday’s game between the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos—a matchup that’s particularly well suited for Key and Peele’s strengths, given Panthers quarterback Cam Newton’s recent remarks about the way his on-field actions as a black man playing quarterback are interpreted by many.
Of course, this being the NFL, using the actual name of the game begets serious copyright lawsuits, which means you can also prepare yourself for dextrous tiptoeing around the usage of the words “super” and “bowl” (note the “and” between those two words, NFL lawyers).
Below, you can watch a trailer—er, press conference—promoting Lee and Morris’ big opportunity.
