Can you sort out the riddle that is Don Atari? Charlie Rose can’t, but he seems positively enamoured with the “anti-fashion fashion guy” all the same in this new promo clip for Zoolander No. 2.
Serving as a more tote bag friendly companion to Kristen Wiig’s nightmare harvesting “Youth Milk” spot, we’re treated to Kyle Mooney’s hot sh*t fashion designer having the run of Rose’s PBS show while the American TV fixture looks on like a smitten fourth grader. That said, it’s not like we aren’t being given hard-hitting questions and answers in this sit-down interview.
Charlie Rose: What was the seminal moment that made you want to be a designer.
Don Atari: That year when [A] Bug’s Life and Antz came out, [youth person noise]. And it’s like ‘which movie am I going to see?’ I gotta make a decision. What movie are you gonna see, Charlie Roses?
Charlie Rose’s answer and the confidence with which he said it may come as a surprise to you. Or it might not. We might be projecting some weird feelings when it comes to imagined animated insect movie preferences.
Zoolander No. 2 isn’t all that far away. Ben Stiller’s star-studded fashion comedy is set to hit theatres on February 12 with a stacked cast that includes Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Kyle Mooney, Christine Taylor and apparently 68,000 cameos.
