Justin Bieber takes spanking from Zach Galifianakis like a pro

Many a celebrity has been teased and berated on Zach Galifianakis’s Funny or Die series Between Two Ferns, but Justin Bieber is the first to be spanked with a belt.

Before doling out his lashings, Zach ribs the teenaged pop star, calling him “a 7 years old” and asking about his hair getting more publicity than his music and whether it’s “fun to be cocky.”

Justin proves a worthy opponent, somehow managing to keep a straight face for five minutes of hilarity and offering his own dry and witty responses to Zach’s questions.

“I’m sorry that I did that. I don’t think spanking kids is really a good thing,” Zach says after spanking Justin three times. “But you’re not a child. That’s the point. You’re not a child. So I can hit a grown man…with a belt.”

The hilarious mock-interview show features a different star answering increasingly awkward questions each episode, with past guests including Steve Carrell, James Franco, Natalie Portman and Michael Cera.
