Jordan Peele Crashed A 'Get Out' College Course
    WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY.
    MY FIRST GUEST STARRED IN THE HIT TV SHOW "KEY & PEELE" AND
    DIRECTED THE SMASH HIT MOVIE, "GET OUT."
    >> HOW DO YOU FEEL NOW?
    >> I CAN'T MOVE.
    >> YOU'RE PARALYZED?
    NOW SINK INTO THE FLOOR.
    >> WAIT, WAIT, WAIT-- >> SINK.
    >> Stephen: PLEASE WELCOME JORDAN PEELE!
    ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ♪ ♪ ♪
    >> Stephen: HEY.
    NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN.
    >> DID YOU TELL THEM TO STAND?
    >> Stephen: NO, WE DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING.
    >> THAT'S NOT A THING?
    >> Stephen: THAT'S NOT A THING.
    >> YEAH!
    THANK YOU!
    ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).
    >> Stephen: YOU JUST GOT A STANDING OVATION.
    YEAH.
    WELL, NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN.
    HAVEN'T SEEN YOU SINCE WE SHOT A LITTLE PIECE FOR THE SUPER BOWL
    SHOW TWO YEARS AGO.
    >> WE DID.
    >> Stephen: AND WHILE WE WERE SHOOTING THAT YOU WERE TELLING
    ME ABOUT THIS MOVIE YOU WERE WORKING ON.
    >> RIGHT.
    >> Stephen: AND I SAID, "WHAT IS IT ABOUT?"
    AND YOU SAID, IT'S KIND OF CRAZY TO EXPLAIN."
    >> IT'S HARD TO EXPLAIN.
    >> Stephen: HE SAID IT'S CALLED 'GET OUT'" AND YOU TOLD
    ME WHAT THE MOVIE WAS ABOUT.
    AND I SAID I WILL DO SEE IT.
    YOU MADE YOUR DEBUT WITH "GET OUT," HIGHEST GROSSING DEBUT
    FILM BASED ON ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY EVER.
    CONGRATULATIONS.
    ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) >> IT'S INFLATION.
    IT'S INFLATION.
    >> Stephen: NO, NO, HIGHEST EVER.
    DID YOU GETTIER BEAK WET ON THAT ONE?
    >> DISOME COCAINE ON SET.
    >> Stephen: OH, GOOD.
    THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I MEANT.
    THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I MEANT.
    >> YOU DID NOT GET MY BEAK WET.
    >> Stephen: YOU DID NOT GET YOUR BEAK WET ON THIS ONE?
    >> NO.
    >> Stephen: LET ME REP YOU NEXT TIME.
    >> FAIR ENOUGH.
    >> Stephen: IT'S GOT 99% ON ROTTEN TOMATOES WHICH IS NEARLY
    UNHEARD OF.
    BUT I HAVE TO ASK WHAT WHO IS THE 1% WHO WENT, "I'M OUT."
    >> RACISM IS...
    >> Stephen: RACISM GETS TO REVIEW THINGS NOW?
    >> RACISM HAS A COLUMN, AND REVIEWS THINGS, AND IS
    RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT 1%.
    >> Stephen: OH, WOW.
    >> BUT, YEAH, LOOK, I'M JUST-- I'M HAPPY TO GET THAT HUMBLE 99.
    >> Stephen: YEAH.
    YOU'LL GET THEM NEXT TIME, MAN.
    >> I'LL GET THEM NEXT TIME.
    I'M HOPING FOR THAT ONE DONUT, DONUT NEXT TIME.
    >> Stephen: WHAT'S THE ONE DONUT, DONUT?
    >> ONE DONUT, DONUT.
    >> Stephen: THE ONE DONUT, DONUT.
    >> IT'S 100.
    >> Stephen: OH, ONE DONUT, DONUT.
    I APOLOGIZE.
    I DIDN'T KNOW.
    I DIDN'T KNOW.
    >> IT'S A BLACK THING.
    THAT'S-- IT'S AN URBAN -- >> Stephen: THAT'S NOT A BLACK
    THING.
    >> IT IS.
    >> Stephen: THAT'S A BLACK THING?
    >> YEAH!
    >> Stephen: THAT'S WHY I DIDN'T KNOW.
    SPOILER ALERT: NOT BLACK.
    I KNOW I SEEM SUPER WOKE AT TIMES.
    I CAN IMAGINE YOU MISTAKING ME FOR BLACK.
    >> I THOUGHT YOU WERE IN WHITE FACE WHEN I CAME OUT HERE.
    >> Stephen: NO, I DON'T PLAY LIKE THAT.
    >> GOOD, THAT'S NOT 2017.
    >> Stephen: NOW, I UNDERSTAND YOU'VE SUBMITTED THIS TO THE
    GOLDEN GLOBES AS A COMEDY.
    >> I-- I SUBMITTED IT AS A DOCUMENTARY.
    ( LAUGHTER ) I DIDN'T KNOW-- YOU KNOW, IT
    WAS-- IT WAS SUBMITTED.
    AND I -- >> Stephen: IT WAS SUBMITTED?
    >> IT WAS SUBMITTED.
    IT WAS -- >> Stephen: DON'T USE THE
    PASSIVE TENSE.
    YOU'RE A BETTER WRITER THAN THAT.
    >> IT HAD BEEN SUBMITTED.
    I TONIGHT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.
    >> Stephen: IT WILL HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED?
    >> I THOUGHT-- HERE'S THE THING.
    >> Stephen: YES.
    YOU HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MOVIE, IS WHAT I UNDERSTAND AT
    THIS POINT.
    >> THE MOVIE IS TRUTH.
    THE THING THAT RESONATED TO PEOPLE IS TRUTH.
    SO I THINK-- FOR ME, IT'S MORE OF, LIKE, A HISTORICAL BIOPIC.
    >> Stephen: OKAY.
    >> THE ORIGINAL TITLE WAS "GET OUT: THE KANYE WEST STORY."
    BUT I HAD TO LOP OFF THE END.
    >> Stephen: IS THE TITLE A REFERENCE TO THE RICHARD PRYOR
    JOKE?
    >> YEAH, A LITTLE BIT.
    >> Stephen: DO YOU MIND TELLING THE PEOPLE THE JOKE.
    >> I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S PRYOR OR EDDIE MURPHY I THINK THE ONE YOU
    ARE REFERENCEs IS THE "AMTIVEAL HORROR."
    IF THE BLACK PERSON WAS THE PROTAGONIST OF A HORROR MOVIE IT
    WOULD BE A VERY SHORT MOVIE.
    AND AT THIS POINT I'M GOING TO GET A PRIOR LAUGH.
    SO THAT'S WEIRD.
    BUT, YEAH, THE BIT WAS THE BLACK FAMILY COMES INTO A HAUNTED
    HOUSE-- I THINK IT'S EDDIE MURPHY-- "THESE GRAPES DRAIPS
    ARE GREAT."
    "GET OUT!" "TOO BAD WE CAN'T STAY, BABY."
    IT'S NOT MY BIT.
    IT'S NOT MY BIT.
    BUT, YEAH, IT WAS LIKE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LET A BLACK
    PERSON BE THE PROTAGONIST IN A HORROR MOVIE, AND IT TURNS OUT
    YOU HAVE A MOVIE THAT HAS A-- A PROTAGONIST THAT IS AWARE THAT
    HORROR IS GOING DOWN.
    ( LAUGHTER ) THERE'S NO WALKING BACKWARDS
    INTO A DARK ROOM IN THIS MOVIE.
    ( APPLAUSE ) >> Stephen: NOW, I MEAN, IT IS
    A FUNNY MOVIE, BUT IT'S ALSO A SCARY MOVIE.
    DID YOU-- DO YOU-- DO-- DO WHITE AUDIENCES AND BLACK AUDIENCES
    GET FRIGHTENED BY THIS MOVIE IN THE SAME WAY?
    DO THEY EXPERIENCE THE HORROR IN THE SAME WAY?
    >> NO, I DON'T THINK SO.
    I MEAN, I THINK BLACK PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, IT'S LIKE THE SECOND--
    THE MOVIE COMES UP, AND, LIKE ARE THE PROTAGONIST IS DATING A
    WHITE GIRL.
    THEY GO, "OH, HE'S IN TROUBLE.
    I DON'T LIKE WHERE THIS IS GOING!
    HE'S IN AN INTERRACIAL RELATIONSHIP.
    GET OUT, BROTHER."
    >> Stephen: UH-HUH.
    WHITE AUDIENCE GOES, "THAT'S VERY PROGRESSIVE.
    THAT'S VERY PROGRESSIVE."
    >> YEAH, THAT'S COOL.
    IT'S NOT UNTIL LATER IN THE MOVIE THAT WHITE PEOPLE GET
    FREAKED OUT.
    THEY'RE LIKE, "OH, MY GOD.
    I THINK I'VE SAID THAT.
    I THINK I SAID THAT THING THAT THE VILLAINS ARE SAYING IN THIS
    MOVIE."
    SO IT'S A VERY DIFFERENT THING.
    AND IT IS, YOU KNOW, THE WHOLE-- IT DOESN'T FIT INTO A GENRE.
    YOU KNOW, IT SORT OF SUBVERTS THE IDEA OF GENRE.
    BUT IT IS THE KIND OF MOVIE THAT, LIKE, BLACK PEOPLE CAN
    LAUGH AT, BUT WHITE PEOPLE NOT SO MUCH.
    >> Stephen: A LITTLE BIT.
    A LITTLE BIT.
    >> YOU LAUGHED A LITTLE BIT.
    >> Stephen: NOT AS MUCH AS PROBABLE YOU DO.
    >> NO, NO.
    >> Stephen: PEOPLE ARE WRITING PAPERS ABOUT THIS MOVIE.
    KIDS IN COLLEGE ARE WRITING PAPER.
    >> THERE ARE COLLEGE COURSES -- >> Stephen: WHOLE COURSES?
    >> YES THERE IS A BLACK CORE COURSE --
    >> Stephen: OKAY.
    >> WHAT DO YOU MEAN "OKAY?" >> Stephen: WHEN YOU SAID,
    "THERE ARE WHOLE COURSES?" AND I SAID "ON THIS MOVIE."
    AND YOU SAID "BLACK HORROR MOVIES.
    >> THIS IS THE ONE.
    >> Stephen: THERE IS NO OTHER BLACK HORROR.
    >> BASICALLY NO.
    THERE IS PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS.
    THERE'S CANDY MAN, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD-- THERE ARE A
    COUPLE.
    >> Stephen: NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, THERE IS ONLY ONE
    BLACK GUY.
    IT'S NOT BLACK HORROR.
    >> HE'S THE MAN.
    >> Stephen: HE'S THE REASONABLE CHARACTER IN IT.
    >> YEAH.
    >> Stephen: HE'S THE REASONABLE CHARACTER IN IT.
    >> IN "NIGHT OF THE LIGDEAD," HE IS THE GUY WHO IS READY TO FIGHT
    ZOMBIES BECAUSE HE'S BEEN FIGHTING WHITE PEOPLE OFF HIS
    WHOLE LIFE.
    ( APPLAUSE ) >> Stephen: NO!
    NO!
    NO!
    OKAY.
    OKAY.
    >> OKAY?
    >> Stephen: SO, I UNDERSTAND YOU WENT TO ONE OF THESE
    CLASSES.
    >> YES.
    SO I -- >> Stephen: DID THEY KNOW YOU
    WERE THERE?
    >> SO I WENT IN WITH A HOOD.
    LIKE, THEY WERE PLAYING THE MOVIE-- U.C.L.A., THEY WERE
    PLAYING A CLIP FROM THE MOVIE.
    AND I KIND OF SNUCK IN.
    I WAS IN THE HOOD.
    AND THEN AT SOME POINT, YOU KNOW, THE TEACHER SAID, "WHAT DO
    YOU THINK THE DIRECTOR WAS THINKING WHEN...?"
    AND I JUST RAISED MY HAND AND I WAS LIKE, "I HAVE AN OPINION ON
    THAT MATTER."
    AND THEY TURN IT WAS LIKE-- IT WAS, LIKE, THE BEST WELCOMING I
    EVER HAD.
    THEY WENT CRAZY.
    >> Stephen: WOW.
    >> I GOT EYE GOT IN FRONT OF HIM THEM, I WAS LIKE TEACHING THE
    LECTURE, AND THEY STARTED SAYING THINGS, RAISING THEIR HANDS
    SAYING, "LET'S TALK ABOUT THE SYSTEM THAT ALLOWED THIS TYPE OF
    OPPRESSION-- WAS THAT WHAT YOU MEANT?"
    LIKE SOME REALLY SMART THINGS.
    >> Stephen: THAT'S EXCITING.
    >> I HAD TO BE LIKE, "YEAH...
    THAT'S... WHAT I MEANT WHEN I DID THAT."
    >> Stephen: WAS THIS THE MOVIE YOU INTENDED FROM THE BEGINNING
    OR DID IT SORT OF LIKE CHANGE IN THE CREATION?
    >> NO.
    IT WAS THE MOVIE.
    THIS IS THE MOVIE-- THIS IS THE MOVIE I WANTED TO MAKE.
    I WANTED TO MAKE A MOVIE THAT WAS FOR A VERY LOYAL BLACK
    HORROR FAN BASE THAT WE GO TO SEE HORROR MOVIES, AND WE-- YOU
    KNOW, WE DON'T GET REPRESENTED.
    AND THIS WAS THE MOVIE I FELT LIKE BLACK PEOPLE WERE WAITING
    FOR.
    AND I'M THRILLED THAT EVERYBODY ENJOYS IT.
    BUT TO BE HONEST, IT WAS-- IT WAS-- IT WAS MY FAVORITE MOVIE
    THAT I HAD NEVER SEEN.
    >> Stephen: WELL, CONGRATULATIONS.
    >> THANK YOU, STEPHEN.
    >> Stephen: "GET OUT" IS AVAILABLE NOW ON DVD.
