Jordan Peele Hilariously Blamed By People For Forever Ruining Classic Songs, Thanks to ‘Candyman’ Trailer Release


The trailer for the upcoming movie “Candyman” dropped on Thursday, featuring a surprise creepy remix to the 1999 hit “Say My Name” by Destiny’s Child.

People quickly skilled the clip on Twitter, hilariously calling out the film’s producer, Jordan Peele, and saying the trailer turned a classic song into a scary one.


The film, directed by Nia DaCosta, is predicated on the 1992 horror classic of the same name, a hook-wielding supernatural killer.

Peele co-wrote the script with DaCosta and Win Rosenfeld.

The slowed-down version of “Say My Name” featured within the trailer wasn’t the first time a Peele movie put an eerie twist on a well-liked song.

A trailer for Peele’s 2019 horror film “Us” similarly featured a haunting version of ’90s hip-hop classic “I Got 5 On It,” by Oakland hip-hop duo Luniz.


It’s safe to mention “Say My Name” has been added to the list of songs that will never be the same again for Peele fans.

Here are just a few of the reactions to the trailer:
