Zach Galifinakis Attacks Justin Bieber In Comedy BitBy: Tobias Roth - September 27, 2013
In the latest episode of Funny or Die’s show, Between Two Ferns, Zach Galifinakis confronts and tears apart Justin Bieber in a very funny way. The show is a short internet comedy series that is aired online and utilizes Galifinakis’ hilarious antics as he interviews celebrity guests. The show has only aired sporadically and started in 2008, with his first guest being Michael Cera. Since then, he has hosted several actors and actresses on the show, and joked around with them about their careers, including Natalie Portman, Bruce Willis, Sean Penn and more.
In the most recent episode, which aired on September 26, he hosted Justin Bieber and continually took stabs at his musical career and teased his hairstyle as everyone seems to like to do. Bieber, known for being a flashy pop star and teen idol, is taught a lesson from the comedic genius during the short interview. Bieber is certainly known for crazy antics and the comedy star calls him out for his erratic behavior, which includes a time when he filmed himself peeing into a bucket, states The Huffington Post. This is clearly not the type of behavior that he should be displaying to his fans as a teen idol, and has been repeatedly criticized for it.
It is unclear why Bieber would agree to be a part of such a video, since it clearly makes fun of him and everything he has said or done, but luckily for those who do not like him, he did. In the video, Galifinakis continually insults him and tries to give him all that he can handle, while Bieber just sits there and calmly takes it and gives him very monotone responses. Entertainment Weekly mentions that he starts out the interview by telling Bieber how excited he is to have him there, especially in the middle of his public breakdown, getting brutal honest after that point. He delivers him questions such as “When you’re in the recording studio, do you ever think ‘Hey, what if I don’t make something sh—y?’” taking a stab at his musical career, and Beiber is simply left speechless after each one.
At one point in the video, Galifinakis even takes off his belt and starts hitting Bieber with it, which is of course fake, but could be very controversial. I can certainly think of a select audience that might wish it were real, while others would never condone the act on anyone.
