Everyone's free to have their own opinions on the best scene of the 2001 seminal masterpiece Zoolander. There's Derek insisting he's a merman, Hansel epically misunderstanding what "inside the computer" means, and if only for pure absurdity, that random appearance by Billy Zane. But according to Marc Jacobs, it's the first act scene in which Derek and his male model roommates go on an ultimately fatal Starbucks run.

The designer posted the short video on Instagram yesterday starring himself and three friends. It begins with the oft-quoted exclamation, "Orange mocha frappuccino!" and subsequently cuts to the dancing-in-a-Jeep-to-the-soundtrack-of-Wham! scene. Fortunately however, the tribute cuts off just as Marc Jacobs lights the cigarette which ends up causing a massive explosion that kills them all. Watch it below, and get excited for the sequel.
