In a new ad that’s airing during tonight’s NBA Playoffs game, Steph recreates a scene from the upcoming film while shooting hoops in an empty barn.

The clip was directed by photographer Kwaku Alston.

After his ball rolls out of frame, Steph goes to retrieve it — only to see a massive shadow approaching from above. He turns around and immediately says, “Nope.”


I would’ve done the same thing.

Nope will be Peele’s third feature film, after his Oscar-winning 2016 debut Get Out and the terrifying Us from 2019.

We don’t know a ton about the movie yet, other than that it’s about “residents in a lonely gulch of inland California who bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery.”

Along with Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer and Steven Yeun have starring roles in the film.

Nope comes out on July 22. I can’t wait to see it!
