Drake hosted the first-ever NBA Awards last night and brought his comedic chops to the table in two skits, including one that featured him and Will Ferrell as “handshake coaches” for NBA players.
In the funniest of the two sketches, Drake impersonated Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry in a parody of Jordan Peele’s instant-classic 2017 horror film “Get Out.”
Drake’s Curry is watching the movie “Belly” and eating off-brand Blazing Hot Cheetos when an actor playing Warriors forward Draymond Green reaches out to get Curry to celebrate the Warriors’ recent NBA championship at a party.
Then an actress playing Steph’s wife, Ayesha Curry, interrupts to hypnotize Drake with a rhythmic motion of tea cup and spoon, à la Catherine Keener’s character in “Get Out.”
“I’m glad we stayed in tonight,” says Drake’s hypnotized Curry in the final frame, wearing a onesie pajama covered in cutouts of Ayesha’s face.
