Key and Peele Brought Back Their Classic “Hingle McCringleberry” Sketch, With Help From Stephen Colbert

Among Key and Peele’s most beloved sketches is “McCringleberry’s Excessive Celebration,” in which football star Hingle McCringleberry (Keegan-Michael Key) can’t stop, won’t stop dancing every time he scores a touchdown—much to the chagrin of the stern, humorless referee (Jordan Peele). In the spirit of the past weekend’s Super Bowl festivities, the comedy duo resurrected these two adversaries—only this time, McCringleberry’s celebrations are even sillier and more excessive, and find him teaming up with Kimble Mathias (Stephen Colbert, who also provides some deadpan commentary).*

Super Bowl 50 may have been the worst in years, but at the very least, we got another classic Key and Peele sketch out of it.

Update, Feb. 9, 2016: This post has been updated to clarify that Stephen Colbert played Kimble Mathias and provided commentary for the sketch.
