Things We Learnt From Zoolander (With A Bonus Video)

It looks as though Zoolander 2 is moving forward, and The Cut informs us that “Lynn Hirschberg will chat with Zoolander 2‘s Ben Stiller for the April 6 installment of the TimesTalks series”. This takes us back to our days of practicing Blue Steel over and over in the mirror, and all the lessons we learnt from the first movie. Lessons like:

80′s one hit wonders may seem innocuous. They are not.

That ridiculously good looking people have problems, too.

“Hi Derek! My name’s Little Cletus and I’m here to tell you a few things about child labor laws, ok? They’re silly and outdated. Why back in the 30s, children as young as five could work as they pleased; from textile factories to iron smelts. Yippee! Hurray!”  Child labor laws were not around in the 30′s!

In 2001 Mahathir bin Mohamad was the Prime Minister of Malaysia

What a eugoogooly is, and how we want someone to give us a good one someday.

Being an investiagatory journalist would be really hard.

Not everyone is an ambi-turner

Natalie Portman is surprisingly funny. Remember her cameo?

“So I’m rappelling down Mount Vesuvius when suddenly I slip, and I start to fall. Just falling, ahh ahh, I’ll never forget the terror. When suddenly I realize “Holy shit, Hansel, haven’t you been smoking Peyote for six straight days, and couldn’t some of this maybe be in your head? And it was. I was totally fine. I’ve never even been to Mount Vesuvius.” Which is something that everyone sometimes needs to ask themselves.

There really should be a male model of the year award. And it should feature walk-offs.

Walk offs should end with this weird underwear thing that someone would later try to do at a party in college, that wouldn’t work.

And of course….

It taught us how to read good.

And in case you haven’t seen the movie, here’s Zoolaner in nine minutes:
