Zach Galifianakis Says Everything You Want to Say to Justin Bieber

The pop star's appearance on "Between Two Ferns" was more than just awkward; it was sublime.

Justin Bieber's appearance on Zach Galifianakis' "Between Two Ferns" was bound to be awkward—all "Between Two Ferns" installments are—but it was better than just awkward. In the Funny or Die video Galifianakis ends up saying things to Bieber so many adults have wanted to say.

Some examples:

  • "Is it fun to be cocky?"
  • "When you're in the recording studio do you ever think, 'Hey, what if I don't make something shitty?'"
  • "You've had three hairstyles. What's next for your career?"
  • "You're too young to be smoking pots and peeing in buckets and driving up and down the highway fast."

He also confronts him about that whole Anne Frank thing. Oh, yeah, he also spanks him. Everyone over the age of 15 thanks you for that, Zach.
