Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele love to riff on big-name sports. The comedy duo behind sketch show Key & Peele has a Super Bowl-themed special in the works and if it’s anything like these two short, golden clips surrounding Sunday’s NFL action, it’ll be hilarious.

The target this time: post-concussion, former NFL stars who morph into talking heads on pregame network television. They portray the fictional Dante Pibb and Bertram Skilling, and every note is in tune: the Dick Tracy villain suits; the bad short-term memory; the talking-point-driven analysis; the way guys like Shannon Sharpe and Rodney Harrison laugh way too hard at medium zingers.

For archival purposes, they like Green Bay over Seattle, New England over Indianapolis. Everything’s better with Mayo!
