She says, "yo~tsu!" He says, "What up doe?"

The Predator co-stars Olivia Munn and Keegan-Michael Key give a lesson in slang words in a new clip for Vanity Fair's "Slang School" series. For Munn, it's Japanese she picked up while growing up on an air base in Tokyo. For Key, it's Detroit slang from his years growing up in the D — words like "chicken," "stunt," "chops," and "the Joe."



You can watch the clip below. The Predator is now playing in theaters.
