Keegan-Michael Key Reads Dr. Seuss as President Obama


Yay. Yeah. Yay. We’re back with
Keegan Michael Key, and that is a clip from our
new show, Green Eggs and Ham. I am executive producing
it for Netflix, and you are narrating it. Yeah. And what did you think
when you got the call? Oh, I was I was in
100% right off the bat. Yeah And I’m such a big, I
am a huge Dr. Seuss fan. This was my very first book. Really? Yeah, One Fish, Two
Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish was the very first book my
parents ever read to me. So he’s been a big
part of my life. And it was interesting,
it was like one of these dreams that come true
that you don’t know you had. Right. And so when I got the call,
I’m like, what do you want? You want me to be the narrator? I’m in. So I just started
rhyming all the time, for like weeks on end. Yeah, I was going to say– Just to get back into practice. You know? Is it hard to? Because there are so
many rhymes in the books. Was it hard to do that? The rhyming, the
rhymes are so friendly, and they feel so good, it’s
like it takes you right back. So it wasn’t that difficult
to get right back into it. Yeah. All right. So here’s what
we’re going to do. You’re a big fan of
Dr. Seuss, and you’re so good at
impressions that we’re going to have you read
a little bit of a book, and we’re going to have you do
it as a celebrity that we pick. So I’m going to hit
that, all right? All right, here we go. Here we go. All right. All right. Oh, OK. All right. OK, let’s see this. One Fish, Two– OK,
as Barack Obama. All right, here we go. Say, what a lot
of fish there are. Yes, some are red, and some
are blue, some are old, and some are new. I’m going to tell you, something
are sad, and some are glad, and some are very, very bad. Why are they sad
and glad and bad? I do not know, go ask your dad. Now, not one of them
is like the other. Don’t ask why, go
ask your mother. All right, here we– All right. Let’s do one more. All right. Oh, my. All right, OK. I look forward to this. All right, OK. OK, OK. Ok, Jay. All right, yeah. I do not like them in a box,
I do not like them with a fox. I do not like them
in a house, Jay. I do not like them with a mouse. I do not like them
here or there, I do not like them anywhere. I do not like green eggs
and ham, I do not like them, Sam I am. I didn’t use any consonants. I understood you, so
it wasn’t that good. You understood me, that’s good. OK. Green Eggs and Ham will be
available on Netflix, November 8th, and we’ll be right back. Hi, I’m Andy. Ellen asked me to remind you
to subscribe to her channel so you can see more
awesome videos, like videos of me
getting scared, or saying embarrassing things, like
ball peen hammer, and also some videos of Ellen and
other celebrities, if you’re into that sort of thing. (SCREAMS) (BLEEP) God! (BLEEP) (THEME MUSIC PLAYS)

  1. she already grabbed the books he was gonna read before she even spins haha
    (i know they already plan this beforehand lol)

    ps. watch my last vid of me saying 150 digits of pi from memory ๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham were my childhood books I would read all the time!
    I loved his Barack Obama impression he sounded just like him! I love it!

  3. I love how he literally didnโ€™t actually Read a single word from the books. Didnโ€™t even pretend, he left them opened to the cover pages

  4. ๐Ÿ˜Ž You just KNOW that Sophia Vergara totally lost it when she saw his impression of her. She seems to have a WILD sense of humor. ๐Ÿ‘

  5. I have to admit..
    I love watching
    "Finding Nemo" at the same time when I'm eating fish and chips for dinner.

  6. That's so genius get a talk show host (Ellen) to produce your show and then you save on marketing because of course she'll just promote it in general….. Sneaky sneaky sneaky

  7. I had a girlfriend once point out that if you read the title of the book the way Japanese do it would be One Two Red Blue Fish Fish Fish Fish. I still like it better that way

  8. Don't get me wrong, I love Key & Peele. But this shows feel so forced, contrived and prepared.

    I don't believe the laughter, I don't believe the showbiz smiles. Most modern TV, especially state side, just makes my skin crawl for some reason.
