Keke Palmer on the ‘Nope’ press tour: See her best moments

From the creative genius who brought you Kate Winslet, and you know what you did and Sorry to this man comes a whole host of fresh viral content from the press tour for Jordan Peele’s latest film, Nope.

In recent weeks, the star-studded cast of “Nope” – including Daniel Kaluuya, Steven Yeun and Keke Palmer – have been making the rounds of red carpets, magazine covers and late-night TV to work for Universal Pictures’ Sci- Fi to advertise Thriller, in theaters Friday.

And unsurprisingly, nobody has turned heads and sparked more joy than Palmer, whose charismatic charm, impeccable fashion sense and witty quips have taken over social media in the best possible way.

Adding to the film’s overwhelmingly positive reviews, Palmer’s ability to churn out soundbites after instantly unforgettable soundbites will no doubt bolster the box office performance of Peele’s highly anticipated opening weekend follow-up to Get Out and Us.

As the great Issa Rae once said (Wednesday on Twitter), “Keke can entertain absolutely EVERYTHING. Wow.”

Please enjoy this little sample of internet gems that the popular actor, singer and TV host has given us on the way to Nope so far.

‘And who the hell are they?’

Add X-Files characters Fox Mulder and Dana Scully to the growing list of notable people Palmer couldn’t identify if their lives depended on it.

After famously and hilariously failing to recognize former Vice President Dick Cheney during a lie detector test conducted by Vanity Fair two years ago, the performer once again struck viral gold we didn’t know we had with the sequel “Sorry to This Man.” needed it.

While reading fan theories with her “Nope” co-stars in a new video for Vanity Fair, a perplexed Palmer came across the names of David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson’s legendary X-Files detectives.

After a dramatic pause, Palmer lowered her voice and asked her castmates, “And who the hell are they?”

In reaction to the clip – which has garnered more than 3 million views on Twitter alone – @dansensolsens tweeted“KEKE KNOW NO MY GOD” while @Danez_Smif wrote“Keke Palmer Knowing No Whites is my political party.”

“With Angela, everything is in the lips”

Note to Hollywood: It’s time for a reunion between Palmer and fellow “Akeelah and the Bee” actress Angela Bassett.

During her autocomplete interview with Wired, Palmer revealed that her lifelong celebrity double is Bassett, before sharing back-to-back impressions of the veteran actor’s performances in 1992’s “The Jacksons: An American Dream” and “What’s Love Got to Do With It.” from 1993 delivered.

“With Angela, it’s all in the lips,” Palmer explained. “It’s all in the lips.”

“KEKE PALMER DID NOT HAVE TO DO THIS TO ANGELA BASSET” @lexisryann_ captioned the clipwhich has garnered more than 2 million views on Twitter.

“She really is a STAR” tweeted @MediumSizeMeech. “A mother/daughter Oscar bait film directed by Angela Bassett where Angela has Alzheimer’s and Keke returns to her childhood home to take care of her, despite their estrangement and drama ensues IF.”

“Who writes the check?”

While other Nickelodeon and Disney Channel stars of the early 2000s played checkers, Palmer played chess.

The former child star — known for starring in roles on the Disney Channel Original Movie Jump In! and the Nickelodeon sitcom True Jackson, VP — recently reflected on her time working for both rival networks while most of the young actors have remained true to one or the other.

“Here’s the funny thing: I’ve been bouncing back and forth between Disney and Nickelodeon a bit,” Palmer told Wired. “I said, ‘Who writes the check?'”

“Keke Palmer actually said she had Disney AND Nickelodeon on the line and you would too for a check!!” Entertainment Tonight editor Mekishana Pierre tweeted.

“Yes!” replied @twilover628. “She’s the only one I can think of who’s done that. SYMBOL.”

In another viral Vanity Fair moment, Palmer disapproved of a “Nope” fan who referred to her character as “the lady” while speculating about the film on social media.

“The lady,” repeats Palmer, 28, in a clip that has been viewed about 200,000 times on Vanity Fair’s TikTok page. “I hope this is an extremely young person because when was I promoted to lady?” I’m not a girl?”

On cue, Palmer then kicked off with an impromptu cover of Britney Spears’ “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman.”

“Keke is a whole vibe,” wrote TikTok user @yo._.nina.

“Facts!!” wrote @josh_p_jackson. “Once teenagers stop saying ‘hey’ when they ask a question to say ‘sorry sir or mam’ then you know. lol.”

‘Am I kidding?’

After following Palmer’s journey on the “Nope” press tour, most people would probably jump at the opportunity to be her girlfriend right away.

But when Glamor magazine asked her to call herself a friend, the Emmy-winner quickly fell into a mini existential crisis.

“I think I’m a fun friend,” she said confidently at first. “I always try to make my friends laugh and stuff and do fun activities. We go [to] Boat cinema, rooftop cinema.”

With a thoughtful look, she added: “Damn, it seems like I only go to the movies. Am I funny?

“keke is just like me” @ncrmalpeople tweeted.

“The ‘Damn’ towards the end”, @RearViewGone tweeted. “When you say it out loud, you realize you’re the problem you thought was someone else’s.”
