Two of America’s top funny guys, Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell, are starring in a new movie called The Campaign together (comes out August 10). And given the nature of each comedian’s humor, it goes without saying that journalists need to brace themselves before conducting an interview with these two.
Case in point: VH1 Celebrity’s recent chat with the two about the upcoming film. In the two minute and forty-four second span of the clip, Galifianakis nearly choked himself by pouring a tin full of black licorice, or as Ferrell called them, “miniature sanitary cakes for a tiny toilet,” down his gullet; the duo talked about their shared love of “yacht rock,” and Ferrell talked about wearing platform shoes and pinning “the tiniest little cowboy hat” to his head if he ever seriously entered politics. Needless to say, this interview made me laugh out loud a few different times.
