Zach Galifianakis is a master of awkward humour, but the latest edition of his hilarious, Webby Award-winning faux-talk show Between Two Ferns — featuring controversy-plagued pop star Justin Bieber — takes the cake.
In an uproarious and cringe-inducing five minutes that feels surreal and brutally honest, Galifianakis skewers the Stratford, Ont.-born Biebs.
"It's really exciting to talk to you, especially right in the middle of your public meltdown," Galifianakis begins, before launching into a bunch of questions and sarcastic statements that tons of anti-Bieber folks will undoubtedly cheer on.
Bieber, to his credit, plays along gamely, offering a subdued, largely straight performance against host Galifianakis' inevitable breakdown.
