Jordan Peele's Us continues to impress at the box office, bringing in $34.5 million during its second weekend. Considering how much of an impact it's already had on movie-going audiences, Saturday Night Live has taken a shot at parodying the movie through the guise of a Discovery credit card commercial.
Starring Ego Nwodim and Kenan Thompson, the sketch plays on Discovery commercials that boast about giving customers real people to talk to. "Good luck, you'll just be talking to a robot," Thompson's character quips as Nwodim calls Discovery to check on suspicious activity. "Nope, with Discover card you get to talk to a real person who is just like you," she replies.
Immediately she's met on the other side of the phone by her very creepy doppelgänger, channeling Lupita Nyong'o's performance.
When Nwodim complains that she's not getting through to the customer services representative, Thompson insists on taking over the call. Instead of a creepy voice he's greeted with a huge yelp, just like how Winston Duke's doppelgänger communicates in the film.
Us saw a 52 percent drop from its excellent opening weekend, but as Deadline notes, horror films on average drop 60 percent to 65 percent in their second weekend. Get Out only dropped 15 percent, however, mostly thanks to word of mouth.
