'Between Two Ferns' With Brad Pitt: 15 Cringe-Worthy Quotes From the 'Interview' (VIDEO)

brad pitt zach galifianakisMost likely, you either really love or really loathe Zach Galifianakis's show on Funny or Die, most appropriately titled "Between Two Ferns." Zach and his usually A-list guest are, well, sitting between two ferns, and Zach purposefully messes up the shows and movies in which his guests star, is super obnoxious, and tries with admirable courage to make his guests feel awkward as hell. When Zach interviewed Brad Pitt on "Between Two Ferns," it was both cringe-worthy and hilarious and instantly turned into Internet gold.

I've personally always enjoyed his interview with Jon Hamm, but that's neither here nor there.

Zach and Brad keep the uncomfortable laughs coming -- from calling Brad's new movie Furry to bringing up an ex of Brad's only Zach would ever have the balls to bring up. You MUST watch.


Take a look:

Funny stuff, no? Our top 15 favorite quotes of this video are thusly:

1.) "My guest today, Bradley Pitts."

2.) "How old were you when you lost your virginity, zero?"

3.) "Showers. Why don't you take them?"

4.) "Because you look like Hitler's dream."

5.) "Tell us about this movie Furry."

6.) "You know I'm a dad now? ... We don't bassoon at my house anymore."

7.) "Do you mind if I borrow one or two of your sperms?" [How all interviewers have the self-control not to ask Brad Pitt this question, we will never know.]

8.) "I also am involved in a lot of charity work myself ... I work with this one group called Doctors Without Diplomas."

9.) "There was a couple of rats on the subway and I thought they were either Ebola or ISIS."

10.) "He was in Benjamin Buttons! He was in it! That's why I said it! ... That's the guy! You can't recognize him because of the makeup stuff."

11.) "When you and Clooney get dressed up in your tuxes together, do you ever kind of look at each other and go, 'Aren't we a couple of Dapper Dans?!?!'" [They don't?!?!?!? They should.]

12.) "Is it hard for you to maintain a suntan?"
"Because you live in your wife's shadow."

13.) "I had the same thing with Condi Rice."

14.) "Was it like one of those classical love stories? Like, when, I don't know, when Ross first saw Rachel? You know that show, Friends, have you seen that?"

15.) "I like that song."

Kudos to Brad being a good sport. It's hard to tell exactly how much acting goes into these interviews or if their angst is really, purely, truly real. Of course one would lose one's temper if one were called a "shitty actor," and spitting gum in Zach's face is an appropriate response. Sadly, the standup from Louis CK pretty much did nothing to liven things up. And of course, Zach is the only one who could ever get away with bringing up Jennifer Aniston like that. Kudos to you, Zach. Kudos to you.

Hopefully Brad will be able to recover quickly from this terrifying, harrowing ordeal.
