A Bunch Of Real Life Zoolanders


Not going to lie, this video of male models — from the spring 2012 fashion shows — lip-syncing Elvis Presley is pretty hot. But it also reminds us of the gas fight scene in “Zoolander.” Plus, it’s funny that the lyrics to this song are “a little less talk, a little more action,” because really, you wouldn’t want to have a conversation with any of these guys, I bet.
