Those are the questions that are probably running through your mind right now because this interview that Sean Spicer did with Brietbart is, wow, something else. It's like an episode of Between Two Ferns except only awkward and 100% sincere. It's filled with awkward silences, bad camera work, painful 20-yeard stares, and this:
If you thought that the platform for the "Alt-Right," which is just white supremacy with a haircut, Breitbart was going to be getting some sort of quality upgrade because the site's old editor Steve Bannon was in the White House, prepare to be let down.
The biggest question is, why did they let an intern interview their big get Sean Spicer?
Last year, Ben Affleck was in a little movie called Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, a real film that makes absolutely no sense at any point ever. But out of misery comes joy in the form of a great meme: Sad Affleck.
Ben Affleck says that he’s learned a lot from working on a movie of that size and scope and with that kind of money and technology behind it. But more than anything, he learned not to stare off into the distance during interviews. Why? Because that’s how memes are born.
In this interview with BBC, Affleck responds to the “Sad Affleck” sensation:
“It taught me not to do interviews with Henry Cavill where I don’t say anything and they can lay Simon & Garfunkel tracks over it. That’s one thing I learned.”
From Sad Affleck to Smart Affleck.
