QVC Host & Fashion Designer Argue About Moon in Best Home Shopping Fight Ever (VIDEO)

QVC moon planet

There are many things I wouldn’t like about being a QVC host, but I think the hardest part of the job would be making banter for their various infomercial segments. I haven’t watched a LOT of home shopping programming, but every time I have seen it, the host — or hosts, as the case may be — have to just talk and talk and talk about whatever it is they’re trying to sell, and you'd think they'd run out of words by the 10-minute mark or so but NO. In QVC’s entire history of inane conversation, however, I’m not sure anything can trump the idle-chitchat-turned-WTF-IS-WRONG-WITH-YOU-PEOPLE moment that happened between host Shawn Killinger and fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi this week.

The discussion starts out in innocent territory as Killinger presents a colorful variety of shirts to the viewing audience. Unfortunately things take a swift turn once she compares the fabric design to the view from outer space, and she begins referring to the moon as a planet.

That’s when Mizrahi takes a tragic science flub and ensures this clip will live in Internet infamy forever. Behold these two geniuses at work:

Sweet space lord above, I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t hear it with my own ears. In case you missed the exact back-and-forth, here’s a thrilling transcript:

"Isn't the Moon a star?"

"No. The Moon is a planet, darling."

"The sun is a star. Is the Moon really a planet?"

"I don't know what the sun is."

It only gets more awesome when Mizrahi demands that someone off-screen (named, I am not making this up, “Chunky”) to “Google the moon,” at which point he responds in total disbelief to the answer:

But things live on it. That means it’s a planet.

Here’s a longer version of the clip (start at 7:35 or so), which is really worth viewing because of how the shirt model reacts as they keep talking.

HAHAHAHAHA. HAAAAAAAAAAAA. LOOK AT HER.

Just so we're all perfectly clear, the moon is NOT a planet. It’s actually Earth's only natural satellite.

Also, those shirts are ugly as hell.
