A Video Of Hasan Minhaj Saying He's Hotter Than Dax Shepard Has Gone Viral For All The Right Reasons
"But I will not get the same opportunities that Dax does."
Over the weekend, this clip from a Vanity Fair interview with Hasan Minhaj went viral:
In the video, Hasan talks about how he thinks he's more attractive than Dax Shepard, but before you have a fizzy tit, the conversation is more than meets the eye.
The line of questioning starts when the interviewer/~detector~ asked if Hasan was bothered that Dax rated his looks a 9 out of 10 instead of a 10 out of 10:
And, because mess, the detector asked Hasan how he would rate Dax. At first, he said what we were all thinking:
But Hasan is an honest man and he answered truthfully:
After the detector commented that his rating was "harsh," Hasan felt the need to defend his rating and I see the point his was making:
Dax is part of this thing where, in show business, there's this whole movement of "approachable white dudes" whereas with, like, men of color, it's like Idris Elba, Henry Golding, Zayn Malik, or you work in IT. There's no middle. You know how there's a whole class of white dudes, like schlubby dudes who went to high school with me, but now made it in show biz? There no that [for men of color]. You gotta have, like, the V-taper in your abs if you're gonna be Asian.
