You have to hand it to Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele; when they have an idea, they really take to its absolute limit. Case in point: the marketing for their film, Keanu. First, they released multiple posters parodying classic films including Scarface, Bad Boys, and Star Wars. Now, Keanu’s trailer just got the internet’s famous “kitty makeover”. Oh yeah, we’re talking about a shot-for-shot remake of the Keanu trailer with just cats (and a plush toy playing the role of the film’s star).
It might be a bit overkill, but there’s something comforting about a cat ordering a white wine spritzer at a strip club. Also, unlike the human version, this trailer is safe for work, because some of the cursing is cut out using meows. Specifically in the strip club scene. You still get to hear the cat version of Key singing and jamming out to George Michael’s “Freedom” telling everyone in the car, “that’s my sh*t right here!” though.
The all-cat version of Keanu is in good Youtube company with the feline version of Girls, Orange Is the New Black, a slew of Disney films, and even 50 Shades of Grey. If something has been filmed, there’s probably a cat version of it somewhere.
Keanu hits theaters April, 29.
