We’ve all grown a bit weary of Justin Bieber’s inappropriately shirtless in public, ass on Instagram, “we get it, you’re a stoner” behavior over the lat few months and luckily Zach Galifianakis takes the Bieber to task in this hilarious episode of his Funny or Die series, Between Two Ferns.
Before the shtick and the leather starts flying, Galifianakis expresses how excited he is to talk to the pop tart “right in the middle of your public meltdown.” The hirsute host then goes in on the teenaged twink for trying to recruit Anne Frank to his army of Beliebers, peeing in a bucket and generally being the most famous trashbag since Hefty.
Then shit gets real-ish. “I don’t think your mom would really mind if a stranger whipped her son,” Galifianakis says while taking off his belt. Since his bodyguards didn’t rush the stage and immediately subdue Galifianakis, and Bieber didn’t start tearing up like a stunt queen facing jail time, it’s safe to assume no international superstars were harmed in the making of this clip.
Zach’s got a point, though. Bieber’s mom probably wouldn’t mind if a stranger whipped her son (especially if she was still cashing them checks). “You’re not a child, and that’s the point,” the comedian jests. “So I can hit a grown man with a belt.” Yes, he can, and there are special places for that. Justin’s just not old enough to get into them yet.
