In addition to being on the cover of Vogue's February issue (really), the magazine anointed Derek Zoolander with the treatment it gives its biggest stars: 73 Questions. The video, which debuted today, features Ben Stiller in Zoolander mode giving a tour of his apartment (read: a David Barton gym in New York City) while discussing everything from his favorite season ("Spring. No — salt.") to how he'll spend his retirement ("Models don't retire. They get turned into glue. It's better that way.").

In typical Zoolander fashion, the clip also includes surprise cameos from celebrities like Zoe Kravitz and Shepard Fairey. Here, the Zoolander-iest quotes from the highly Zoolander-y interview.

How do you feel about Brooklyn? "I really hope they find a cure."

How often do you take the subway? "Hardly ever. Sandwiches are a gateway to cake."

What's your favorite movie of all time? "The one with the dinosaurs. Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. That was really scary."

Who's your favorite Disney character? "Walt."

What's your New Year's resolution for 2016? "I can't think five years ahead."

What's on your mind right now? "Pass."
