This spot is hilarious.
13 March 2002 | by (Nyack, NY) – See all my reviews

Classic Ben Stiller humor through his amazingly developed character, Derek Zoolander. If you enjoyed the film, this clip is on the DVD and it should be required viewing. I laughed so hard I had to stop it so I could catch my breath. The clip is simply an advertisement for Derek Zoolander's new University for male modeling. It is done in a standard "campy" style, a la Sally Struthers' correspondence school bits, without the constant annoying presence of Sally Struthers. 'Derek Zoolander University' was shown at the 1997 VH1 Fashion Awards and is one of the two spots that were the predecessors of the movie 'Zoolander'.
