Oh, internet. When it isn’t giving us fake news or flooding us with hateful images and words, we do occasionally find gold.
Some wonderful person from the net recut the Jordan Peele trailer of Us with footage from the animated series, The Proud Family.
YouTube channel Yeek. has a little fun with the similarities for their latest video, which Peele himself shared on Twitter. It recreates the Us trailer, using clips from the animated movie!
Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us, from Monkeypaw Productions, stars Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Black Panther’s Winston Duke), and their two children (Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex) for an idyllic summer getaway.
Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family.
After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.
Universal has dated Us for March 15, 2019.
