Key & Peele Perfectly Spoof Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos

You ever wonder if Neil deGrasse Tyson uses that massive intellect of his to get out of arguments by just confusing people? Let’s be honest, if you were as smart as he was, you’d be pulling this stuff, too. I can only imagine how good it feels to whip out science facts and figures and history like this at the drop of a hat.

The tone of this sketch perfectly nails the Cosmos style, and Tyson’s unique way of speaking when he’s explaining things on the show. Check it out, and be sad with us that Key & Peele is ending soon.

Oh, did anyone else catch that Mass Effect song at the end there?
