Comedy Central’s Key and Peele Parody Apple CEO Tim Cooke and Obama Discussing Clint Eastwood

When their Comedy Central sketch comedy series ‘Key & Peele’ returns for a second season, comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will once again parody some of pop culture’s biggest names. Two of the high-profile parodies target Apple CEO Tim Cooke and President Barack Obama.

The parody of Cooke features him at the Apple launch in San Francisco on Wednesday. The CEO decided not to stick to his script and promote the new Apple products, because he doesn’t like being compared to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. He then equated a table to Bill Gates, and proceeded to smash it. He then compared his competitors’ products to a glass, and starting breaking it. The clip ends with Cooke showcasing a new, untested product, with disastrous results.

The parody of Obama features the president and his Anger Translator Luther, as they comment on the recent Republican and Democratic National Conventions. Luther said the president wants to fight Clint Eastwood after the ‘Trouble with the Curve’ actor filmed himself talking with an imaginary Obama in an empty chair. During the monologue, which aired before Mitt Romney’s speech at the GOP convention, Eastwood said the president has failed to deliver on his promises.

Watch season two of ‘Key & Peele’ on Comedy Central when it starts Wednesday, September 26 at 10:30pm/9:30c. To watch episodes from season one, visit ‘Key & Peele’s page on the network’s official website.
