Jordan Peele may be an Academy Award-winner for his work in horror, but he proved that he’s just as skilled in comedy.

The Us director appeared on a recent episode of Showtime’s nightly talk show Desus & Mero and hilariously dodged film pitches from the show’s hosts.

Desus Nice and The Kid Mero tried getting Peele’s support for several outlandish film ideas. The Bronx duo pitched “We Bought a Bronx Zoo,” based on Matt Damon’s We Bought A Zoo, and tried to re-create Marvel’s Avengers with their “Captain Puerto Rico” led “The Avengyerrrrrrrrs.” “That’ll make a billion dollars right there, easily,” the hosts proclaimed.

They even tried to bring in pop-culture references such as a Jaws-inspired “Baby Shark” movie.

Despite their perceived failures, the duo had one explicit film idea that appeared to slightly pique Peele’s interest.
