QVC Host and Isaac Mizrahi Have No Idea What The Moon Is, So Don't Worry About That Dumb Thing You Said That One Time — VIDEO
I want you to close your eyes right now and think of the single stupidest thing that has ever come out of your mouth. I want you to relive that awkward moment in its full capacity, as if it is happening to you right now. And then I want you to take a deep breath and come to terms with the fact that no matter what you said or did, you will never embarrass yourself quite as much as these QVC hosts who genuinely don't know what the moon is.
For those of us who were awake during second grade and/or have utilized our connection to the wondrous thing called "the internet," we know that the moon is, in fact, Earth's only satellite. QVC host Jane Treacy clearly didn't get the memo (or got confused after shotgun watching all of Sailor Moon ) when she was describing a cardigan and said, "It kind of looks like what the Earth looks like when you're a bazillion miles away from the planet Moon."
She doubts herself for a moment, though, and asks if the moon is actually a star. Thank God, though, she has designer Isaac Mizrahi to set the record straight: "No, the moon is a planet, darling," he assures her in that way that only your hot, popular, older friends can.
IT GETS WORSE, THOUGH. It becomes very clear in the downward spiral of what might be the most out-of-this-world conversation (both figuratively and literally) that neither of them knows what a planet is ("You have to GOOGLE THE MOON," Mizrahi says at one point, something I plan to tattoo on myself as soon as feasibly possible).
A loose translation of the rest of the conversation:
"I'm more clueless than you are!"
"NO, I AM!"
The worst part of all, though, is that the cardigan in question doesn't even look like "Earth from a bazillion miles away on the Planet Moon." Click here to watch an exchange guaranteed to temporarily lower your IQ with every listen:
