Zach Galifianakis has come to the apex of his career—he has publically spanked Justin Bieber on his Funny or Die talk show “Between Two Ferns.”
Galifianakis has been known to say and do cringe-worthy things on his satiric talk show, and has interviewed many an A-lister: Ben Stiller, Sean Penn, Anne Hathaway and countless others. Justin Bieber is his youngest interviewee, but, needless to say, Galifianakis did not tread lightly with the green pop star.
Zach Galifianakis, comedian and star of The Hangover franchise, begins the interview expressing excitement at Bieber’s presence, “especially in the middle of your public meltdown.” The interview continues on this track of poking fun at Bieber, while the young singer sits mostly in stunned silence.
The interview progresses as does Galifianakis’ fervor—he flies into a ridiculing rant, saying: “You’re too young to be smoking pot!” … “I don’t think your mom would really mind if a stranger whipped her son!” Galifianakis then removes his belt and proceeds to whip our poor pop celebrity. After putting back on his belt, Galifianakis wraps up the interview by asking Bieber, “So, who are you dating?” Finally, a good question.
