Key & Peele will provide live commentary during the Super Bowl

If you're one of those people who finds the Super Bowl to be a largely unpleasant display of pointless competition, millionaires slamming their bodies into other millionaires, and men yelling at a TV screen, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele may have just saved your Sunday. The duo known as Key & Peele will host a live video broadcast during the Superbowl with their own take on the proceedings. There are, however, at least two catches. First, the stunt is technically an ad for Squarespace, and second, Key & Peele are legally blocked from saying players' names or specifically mentioning the game at all.

Squarespace tells The Verge the stream will mostly consist of the duo riffing and "talking around the game." It will be interesting to see how they pull it off, but they seemed poised for the challenge. Even though their namesake TV series has ended, Key & Peele have a slew of projects in the works: a comedy show with a Vine star, a movie about a kidnapped kitten, and a stop-motion animated comedy about goth teens.

Key & Peele will also star in a Squarespace commercial to be broadcast during the Super Bowl. You can watch the pair's sportscaster dreams come true here.
