Jordan Peele Has Us Rolling With The GIFs He’s Using To Promote Get Out

Because the upcoming Get Out is written and directed by Jordan Peele -- he of Key & Peele -- you might expect the movie to be funny. It's not. It's a full-blown horror movie, and one that's pretty damn effective. But Peele can't change who he is deep down inside, which is why he's using his natural sense of humor to help promote Get Out on social media, using perfectly coordinated Get Out GIFs.

Now, as someone on Twitter was quick to point out, Jordan Peele (so far) has missed a golden opportunity to use this infamous scene from Seinfeld:

But there's still time. Get Out opens in theaters on February 24, as the Tweets indicate. Something tells me Peele won't let us down.

Jordan Peele hasn't directed a film before, and yet, his directorial debut is earning raves. What's the movie about? Well, Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have been together for months, and it's time for him to meet the parents. Only, when the couple reaches the Upstate abode of Missy (Catherine Keener) and Dean (Bradley Whitford), Chris begins to suspect that the motives for the invitation are sinister, and he wonders how much Rose knew before inviting him.

And the trailer, which doesn't give anything away, goes as such:

Get Out opens on February 24. As all of the GIFs warn you. Prepare accordingly!
