Funny or Die has brought back Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, and this time, the actor had a hilarious and awkward bit with Jerry Seinfeld and Cardi B.
The scene starts with Galifianakis bemoaning having Seinfeld there. "I had President Hillary Clinton on last time," he said. "Now I have this guy, and it's like, who cares?" referring to Seinfeld. "Find me a legitimate guest!"

Galifianakis said that Seinfeld has been a "great launching pad for whites," after noting the career success of Julia Louis Dreyfus, who played Elaine.
The host asked Seinfeld what was next in "lazy, car-based, non-comedy," poking fun at Seinfeld's appearance in Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
Galifianakis also jabbed at Bee Movie, in which Seinfeld starred. "Shouldn't it have been called D minus movie?" he asked.
"It's called Bee Movie," Seinfeld quipped. "It's about a bee, and it was the number one movie when it came out. So I had that feeling... which you had in the first Hangover."
Seinfeld fired back, asking if Galifianakis destroyed "what would have been a comedy classic" by making Hangover sequels, which Seinfeld called "cash grabs."
His response? "My aunt Deborah needed a baboon heart transplant, that's why I did Hangover 2. My Uncle Dicky his yacht club burned down, that's why I did Hangover 3."
After nearly two years, Between Two Ferns is back with a new episode featuring Jerry Seinfeld and Cardi B https://t.co/TLl8loC7Bf— New York Magazine (@New York Magazine) 1529000898.0
All of a sudden, Wayne Knight, who played Seinfeld's nemesis "Newman," appeared, and the two greeted each other as friends, which disappointed Galifianakis. He was expecting a "Hello, Newman."
Seinfeld said that dragging Knight onto the set was "exploitative."
The climax came when "better guest" Cardi B entered onto the set, met Seinfeld, and then took his seat. Seinfeld was then told to sit on a milk carton.
Galifianakis then gushes over the singer's rising stardom, asking her, "isn't your career just nuts?" He then handed her a pregnancy gift, which Cardi B pushed into Seinfeld's face. "See, I got a gift," she teased.
"You're special," Galifianakis told Cardi B. "But the most important thing is that you're relevant."

Sitting on his milk crate, Seinfeld noticed that he wasn't "between the ferns anymore...I don't even fit the description of the show."
Galifianakis then thanked Cardi B for "coming by and saving the show."

After Cardi B snubbed a hug from Seinfeld, the veteran comic said, "that is the opposite of what happened with Ke$ha."
Galifianakis then played the Seinfeld theme music and ended the show.
