The adorable moment happened during the Oscars red carpet Sunday (Mar. 4) when the funny lady interrupted ABC host Michael Strahan’s interview with the Best Actor nominee. While dressed in her Eritrea-themed gown, Haddish stepped on the platform greeting the guys with, “The Princess of Eritrea has arrived.” It was a quick flip on the Black Panther line (“The Prince of T’Challa has arrived”), which went over Strahan’s head.
Kaluuya welcomed the moment with a smile as Haddish did battle move from the film. The actor, who plays W’Kabi, the head of security of Wakanda’s Border Tribe, showed the actress how to properly do the Wakanda salute.
“It’s right over left, right over left,” Kaluuya said.
Check out both moments and the Black Panther cast’s spin on the Wakanda salute below.
