I imagine Zach Galifiankis will be in full offbeat promotion mode until The Hangover III hits theaters, so it only makes since that he took a moment to video-bomb Natalie Morales prior to his Today interview this morning. I would normally consider the bit fun but not remarkable, except A) I really enjoy the above GIF, B) Natalie calls him “Jack” and then Zach nonchalantly corrects her and it’s great, and C) it is followed by an awkward hello with Martha Stewart that turns into a self-assessed “backfire” for Galifianakis.
All this in a fifty second Today clip with limited Matt Lauer!
I respect that Martha never actually attempts funny, just mean. If people interpret it as funny, so be it.
