Drew Barrymore Playing A Game Called ‘Would Drew Barrymore Like That?’ Is As Meta As It Is Hilarious

Drew Barrymore Billy on the Street May 2014

As you may or may not know depending on your level of coolness, Billy Eichner has a game on his show Billy on the Street that he played with Will Ferrell and is probably the most important game ever invented. It’s called “Would Drew Barrymore Like That?” The gist of the game is that you’re given a list of things and you must determine whether or not Drew Barrymore would like each of them — according to Billy’s opinion. It’s taken off as an inside joke for Billy and his Twitter followers, and now he’s finally gotten to play the ultimate version of it, with Drew Barrymore herself.

But of course, like I said, this is all about Billy’s opinion, so it’s not like he can just shout “Scissors!” and have her say whether she likes them or not and call it a day. She could be wrong about what she likes and dislikes, and in fact she is a few times. So that means Drew has to think not as herself but as someone outside herself viewing Drew Barrymore as a public figure whose image is shaped by the masses. That means this video will most definitely be the most meta thing you’ll see today. Unless you look at Macaulay Culkin’s T-shirt of Ryan Gosling wearing a T-shirt of Macaulay Culkin.

Meta or not meta, however, it’s extremely funny, and that’s the most important thing when it comes to videos on the Internet. They should either be very funny or very emotional. Depending on how important Drew Barrymore’s likes and dislikes are to you, this could be both. But I dare you not to laugh when Billy asks Drew Barrymore point blank if anybody ever found Lucy Liu, and she has to explain to him that she’s alive and well. Thank goodness.
