Key & Peele – Awkward Conversation

– Best comic book adaptation…
– Oh, yeah. – to film hands down.
– It’s–oh, yeah. – No argument.
– Oh, yeah. Oh.
See you later, girls. – All right.
– Oh, yeah. Um, I know I’m in the minority
here, but I don’t really like the Christopher Nolan
movies. – [scoffs]
– I don’t. I really just feel like
they’re…overrated. Okay. [all laughing] Well, that’s, um,
that’s just an opinion. You see, that’s why
I prefaced it by saying, “I know I’m in the minority.” Awkward. [both snickering] You know, what, no.
No. Not really.
It’s not awkward, at least not until
you said “awkward.” Now it’s awkward,
because of what you said. Anyway. Anyway, what?
Anyway, what? Really, ’cause when you say
“anyway,” then you have to follow it up
with an actual contribution to the conversation
we’re having. – Yikes.
– No, look at me. Look at me. Look at me.
Look at me. Look at me. There’s no “yikes,”
and the reason why there’s no “yikes” is,
there’s nothing scary about this situation, okay? It’s a very low-stakes
situation. – All right. No, not “all right.”
Come here. No. Don’t look at him. Don’t look
at either of those guys. Look at me, all right? “All right,” what? ‘Cause after you say
“all right,” you have to follow that up
with something. Don’t do it. Don’t look at them. Do not look at them. No–No.
Do not look at them. Do not look at them.
Don’t do it. Tell us how you really feel. Okay, you know what?
I’ll tell you how I really feel. Listen, I really feel
like you’re an asshole who has nothing interesting
to say. So what–oh.
No. Don’t. No, don’t look at them.
Turn your head. Turn it.
Right here. Tell me an opinion
that you have about something. Just one opinion that you have
about anything at all. Just share an opinion.
Anything. Share an opinion. Share an opinion.
Share an opinion. Share an opinion right now.
Just off the top of your head. Share an opinion.
Anything. Just one opinion,
that’s all I’m asking. Share one opinion right now. – Share it. Share an opinion.
– Ah, ah, ah… I don’t have an opinion,
and that’s why I just like everything that everyone else
likes in pop culture. [groans] [sobs] [sobbing] Don’t look at me. Don’t look at me!
Don’t look at me! [sobbing]

  1. Beautiful mockery of the dismissive attitude that now passes for taking the high road in a conversation. Definitely symptomatic of many larger issues at work in American culture these days. Won't take my ol' Grandpa rant too far, as I'm in my 30s, but I find this behavior frustrating and wish MORE folks got called out like this.

    Glad I'm not the only one annoyed with people who act like this!

  2. Excellent! Made my day. This is what happens when everyone can voice an opinion to the world, but not enough people have decent friends or purposeful conversations with real people in real life.

    We now have cheerily walked into a world where people have underdeveloped personalities and underdeveloped social skills. They live online. They are too busy "liking" things to actual develop passions and pursuits and their own character. When called out or engaged, they shut down and resort to dismissive retorts.

    And marketing and tech companies roll in their money and love it. Turns out the freedoms promised by smart phones, smart technology etc. are really just reducing us to…opinionless masses with no true sense of self. Hmm, go figure. No wonder they can sell so many sneakers and horrible movies to the masses…everyone is too bored and distracted to actually care too much about anything.

  3. This was basically me in highschool. Always said i know right or yes. Cuz i had no opinion on any current trends and wanted to sit next to people lol

  4. It saddens me how close to home this hits.

    I know people like this who don't have any real opinions and use catchprases to hide this.

  5. When you offer an unpopular opinion and people scoff and dismiss you you so wish this is what you could do, but alas, people suck, EVERYWHERE.

  6. Not like he offered anything else after stating that Christopher Nolan's Batman is overrated. What specifically makes it overrated? One word bangers with no substance. Similar to peeles one word banger with no follow up as to why it was awkward.

  7. This is a great commentary on society today, only able to converse through memes and pop culture references with no meaningful input of their own.

    Take that away and they're stripped down to their most basic primitive state.

  8. Peele is doing EXACLTY what females do to a guy they are NOT interested in….

    Guy : "Hey Sarah! Your hair looks nice"
    Sarah: "Ok….um….thanks"
    Guy: "I think you are a beautiful woman"
    Sarah: "………….I gotta go……."
    Guy: "good luck with your tests today"
    Sarah : "………awkward……."

    If she was approached by a guy she likes then she would of talked to him. Key is like the guy who just made NORMAL comments…but because she is not interested…all of a sudden the guy's regular comments become sexual harrassmet hahah

  9. Actually his attitude makes a lot of sense. For him, -a guy with no opinion and based all his preferences on an on-going pop culture-, being confronted to spit out some opinion, would be a very high-stake situation.

  10. The funny thing is that, in real life, I don't need "awkward" person to tells others. Like whenever I speak about something, people just shuts up and didn't follow with anything making everything that I said became awkward.

    And that's why I prefer to not talk about anything. 😭
