Key & Peele - Aerobics Meltdown

By Liam Dryden

Everybody's got a secret, and those aerobics dancers seemed WAY too happy...

A few weeks after the internet discovered that Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" fit surprisingly well on top of a 1980's dance aerobics championship video, comedy duo Key & Peele have released an amazing new sketch that shows a... somewhat darker side to the cheesy dance-offs of smiling, neon fitness freaks.

Let's set the scene. It's the 1987 JazzFit Championships, in delightfully terrible VHS quality!

This is finalist competitor Lightning.

He's about to get some bad news. 

But he's got... to keep... dancing...

Or risk losing to his rival, Flash.

We really don't want to give too much away on this one, but it's an amazing downward spiral of darkness in the most ridiculously cheesy environment. Watch the full thing below.

BETTER YET: Somebody has already taken the Key & Peele video and put 'Shake It Off' over the top. And once again, it fits beautifully.
