“It’s really exciting to talk to you, especially right in the middle of your public meltdown.”
So begins comedian Zach Galifianakis’s interview with Canadian heartthrob and current SoCal resident Justin Bieber. On Galifianakis’s Funny or Die series “Between Two Ferns,” he used his trademark awkward confrontational interview style to needle Beebs about his public persona.
The items on Galifianakis’s Bieber rant list include his run-ins with the law for driving too fast, which he was pulled over for here in Southern California. He also asks about the Bieber video where he peed into a bucket and Bieber’s controversial comments saying that Anne Frank would have been a Belieber, which Bieber offers a somewhat genuine seeming response to despite Galifianakis’s berating. Zach also mentions Bieber’s admitted pot use, as well as asking him about his relationships.
Bieber played ball with Funny Or Die three years ago, taking over the site as part of an April Fool’s Day prank. Check out the video below for a much younger-looking Bieber (who still uses a little bit of adult language):
