‘Zoolander 2’ premiere sets the world record for longest selfie stick
Selfie sticks are the ideal accessory for male model Derek Zoolander.
In the 15 years between Zoolander and Zoolander 2, the iconic (and fictional) male model Derek Zoolander has discovered a new favorite accessory: the selfie stick. For a guy whose entire career is about being ridiculously good-looking, it’s probably the most important tech development of the past decade.
For the Zoolander 2 premiere in London this week, Ben Stiller broke the world record for longest selfie stick. This meant wielding an 8.56 meter (28 foot) apparatus with a working cell phone at the end, taking a photo his co-stars Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz, and Will Ferrell, along with members of the crowd below.
We love how seriously Ben Stiller took this extremely important task. His post-selfie interview is a perfect parody of boring post-game interviews with professional athletes.
