ABC’s Black-ish stars one the nation’s most lovable families. If you weren’t already enthralled by their antics, Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross recreated a now-famous scene from Jordan Peele’s directorial debut, Get Out. The scene starts out like your usual Black-ish bit, except the characters look to be in an all-too-familiar position.
As Tracee stirs her drink, Anthony slips into the “Sunken Place”. The scene is beautifully executed, with a high level production quality. The clip ends with a close-up Anderson’s disturbed expression. Thankfully, Jordan Peele got a chnace to check out the episode and loved it. “Blackish just did the best #GetOut bit I’ve seen so far. Loved it, @funnyblackdude and team!!!” he tweeted out early Wednesday morning.
Get Out can be considered a cult classic, with ongoing conversation and relevant topics. It’s sure to be an influence that will continue to be parodied. Fear not; a sequel is in the works according to Peele. We will have to see what will become the hit phenomenon.
