Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bieber


by on September 26, 2013

You have to give Justin Bieber — WAIT, DON’T GO — credit for going on Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis. From the very beginning (“It’s really exciting to talk to you, especially right in the middle of your public meltdown”), through being scolded (“your young punk attitude is not gonna work in this interview. You understand me, son?”), to “You’ve had three hair styles. What’s next for your career?,” Zach lets The Biebs have it, and The Biebs hangs in there. The Anne Frank incident, the peeing-into-a-bucket… it’s all here. And it culminates in a good old fashioned belt-whippin’ bout of corporal punishment. Plus slime.

Okay, DON’T give him credit. Whatever. It’s still a cringingly funny bit.
