Justin Bieber has poked fun at all the recent controversies he has been involved in as part of an online interview skit with The Hangover star Zach Galifianakis, during which the funnyman whips his guest with his belt.
In the 'awkward' encounter on Galifianakis' periodical fake chat show Between Two Ferns, which has been posted on comedy website FunnyOrDie.com, Bieber sits motionless as the angry host quizzes him about urinating in a mop bucket, making inappropriate comments at the Anne Frank Museum, smoking pot and his music.
The five-minute showdown begins with the actor thanking his guest for joining him "right in the middle of your public meltdown", and he apologises to Bieber for the awkward nature of the chat, explaining, "I've never interviewed a seven year old before."
The faux interview takes an unexpected turn for the worse when Galifianakis announces, "Your young punk attitude is not gonna work in this interview. Do you understand me, son?"
Bieber does nothing to rile the host, who goes on to ask, "Is it fun to be cocky?" and, "You've had three different hairstyles; what's next for your career?"
And the pop star tries to politely answer all of Galifianakis' wild questions, including one about his remarks at the Anne Frank Museum in Amsterdam in April (13), when the Baby singer scribbled he hoped the Jewish teenager, who hid from the Nazis during World War II, "would have been a Belieber (fan)" in the tourist attraction's guest book.
The singer said, "I'd went (sic) to the Anne Frank Museum and they'd (guides) said that she was in pop culture and at the end of a two-hour visit I said, 'I wish she'd been a Belieber'." Then, when the pop star was asked to explain his comments, he told Galifianakis, "I wanna be a time traveller!"
The weird chat then got even weirder as the host jumped up from his chair, started removing his belt from his trousers and screamed, "I don't like your attitude... because you're too young to be smoking pot and pee-peeing in buckets and driving up the highway fast. I don't think your mother would mind if a stranger whipped her son."
Galifianakis then pretended to beat Bieber before apologising and calmly asking the bemused star who he was dating.
The interview ended with the actor accidentally tipping green goo, that was intended for his guest, all over himself and stating, "I was in the wrong chair."
