There’s a moment in Jordan Peele’s social horror film Us when Adelaide Wilson (Lupita Nyong’o) asks her doppelganger Red (also Nyong’o) who she and her family of “others” are. Red’s response––”We are Americans.”––is on the nose, but nonetheless prescient.
That line no doubt inspired Funny or Die’s parody trailer that imagined what the film, already a statement on the demonization and confinement of the lower classes from members of the entitled upper echelons, would look like if it took place at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort rather than the deceptively carefree Santa Cruz boardwalk.
The reworked trailer includes shots of white nationalist rallies and includes cameos from Fox News personalities Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, and Sean Hannity. Donald Trump is front and center, of course.
Watch it below:
It appears to have struck a nerve…
…on both sides.
