Watch Derek Zoolander and Hansel Idiotically Talk Politics on 'Saturday Night Live'

Apparently, Ted Cruz and Tom Cruise are not the same person?

The elaborate marketing marathon leading up to the release of "Zoolander 2" continued on Saturday, when Derek Zoolander and Hansel (aka Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson) stopped by Weekend Update on "Saturday Night Live," presumably to share their expertise on the collections that just walked at New York Fashion Week: Men's. But instead, the duo launched into a discussion about the one thing that, in Hansel’s words, everyone wants to hear male models talk about: politics. The commentary that followed was as idiotic as you'd expect, with Zoolander mistaking the Iowa Caucus for a carbohydrate and Ted Cruz for Tom Cruise. They also touch on Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders's personal styles and Donald Trump's answer to Blue Steel, known as Orange Mocha Crappuccino. 

Watch the full segment above, which should be able to hold you over until the movie finally hits theaters on Feb. 12.
