As half of the brilliant comedy duo Key & Peele, we’ve seen Keegan-Michael Key take on many different faces and personalities, from Presidential Anger Translator and Substitute Teacher, to Valet/Action Film Buff and Odd Catch-Phrase Creator. Now get ready for Key, The United Way Volunteer.

The ads, by agency Leo Burnett Detroit, focus on four areas of United Way’s work like food and nutrition, the 2-1-1 Call Center that provides a a variety of services, financial stability and education.
