ZACH GALIFIANAKIS SPANKS JUSTIN BIEBER!: JUSTIN BIEBER proved he does have a sense of humor by sitting down for a "Between Two Ferns" mock-interview with ZACH GALIFIANAKIS -- which culminated with the Bieb getting a full-on spanking with a belt. The hilarious encounter starts out with Galifianakis telling Bieber, "It's really exciting to talk to you, especially right in the middle of your public meltdown."

From there, he goes on to probe Justin about pot smoking and that pee-in-a-bucket video, peppering him with questions like: "You've had three hairstyles. What's next for your career?" and "When you're in a recording studio, do you ever think, hey, what if I don't make something [crappy]?" The skit ends with Zach telling him he's too young to be a pothead, then he takes off his belt and beats him with it.
