Watch Robert De Niro Trick Zac Efron Into Making Him a Turkey Sandwich (VIDEO)

Funny or Die

We would be lying if we said that we hadn’t fantasized about Zac Efron preparing us a turkey sandwich, so props to Robert De Niro for making it happen.

In a new video for Funny or Die, De Niro purports to give his Dirty Grandpa costar an acting lesson…but actually just talks him through the stages of building a turkey sandwich because he doesn’t feel like making one himself.

“I want you to think of those to pieces of bread as a scene, okay?” De Niro begins, squinting his eyes in that way he does. “Now what you’re bringing to the scene is your own flavor. So put a little mustard on.” (The actor even draws on advice from similarly renowned contemporaries: “It’s like Dame Judi Dench once told me: ‘Don’t put too much turkey on the sandwich.'”)

Watch the (occasionally potty-mouthed) video:

The verdict? “Wow. This is even better than what Ben Stiller made for me in Meet the Parents.”

De Niro approves of Efron’s sandwich craftsmanship, as our crush on the two of them grows stronger by the second.

Dirty Grandpa premieres on Friday, but we hope Efron and De Niro stay friends forever because we truly enjoy their rapport (and will never get tired of seeing pictures of them bro-ing out shirtless).

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

I’ve been a big fan of Deniro’s since the Godfather series. As he gets older I’ve questioned why he needs to be in so many movies & those that are of a caliber that are way beneath his talents?? Please be more selective for your legacy as the great actor you are!

The number 2 is spelled T W O. How many is “to pieces of bread”? Why is proofreading not important around here?
