Key and Peele’s Lizard Sheeple and the Shamester Are Hype-Trolling the VMAs

In lieu of having one static host this year, the VMAs are moderating the ceremony by committee. But the comedy duo Keegan-Michael Key as Lizard Sheeple and Jordan Peele as the Shamester are quickly becoming our de-facto guides for the evening. They’re work-shopping their fire tweets on live TV (“Nicki Minaj is a very cunning linguist,” was Lizard’s take on the rapper’s performance with Ariana Grande); physically acting out memes they hope go viral online (pantomiming the universally relatable “no parking today at church” face); and just generally being the best hype-trolls in the game.
