Can You Tell Which Celebrity My Dad Is Talking About?

Good luck.

Meet my dad, who is absolutely clueless when it comes to pop culture.

David Marder / Facebook

Yes, that IS him "pinching" Eli Manning.

I'm currently stuck at home with him, so I thought it would be funny to ask him to describe these celebrities. Can you figure out who he's talking about?

  1. He's supposed to be a basketball player in that movie about him being 17, but he's way too short.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Zac Efron

    I believe he's referring to 17 Again because my mom and I watch that movie every time it's on, but it could be High School Musical.

  2. Is that the one you want to date? He wears skirts sometimes.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Harry Styles

    Hi, Harry! Call me!

  3. There are too many of them. I don't know which that is. Is that the one that sells lipstick?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Kylie Jenner

    I once asked my dad to name the Kardashian-Jenners, and the only one he got off the top of his head was Kim.

  4. If you break up with her, she'll write a song about you.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    In case you were wondering, his favorite Taylor Swift song is "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." He especially loves when she says, "Like, ever."

  5. The only good thing about Austin Powers in Goldmember.

  6. I still don't know if she got with Bradley Cooper or not.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Lady Gaga

    My dad has seen A Star Is Born and shipped Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper just like the rest of us!

  7. Too quick a transition from being a kid to being grown-up. You really liked her when you were younger. She cut her hair once.

    Getty
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Miley Cyrus

    For the record, I STILL like Miley.

  8. She sings about her backside.

    Nicki Minaj

    He didn't want me writing the word "butt" on the internet, I guess.

  9. Most annoying 12-year-old on the planet.

    Getty
    Correct!

    Justin Bieber

    I honestly don't know if he's heard anything about Justin Bieber since I loved him in middle school.

    Rihanna

  11. My wife thinks he's hot. He's a wrestler.

    Getty
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    The Rock

    My mom is rightly obsessed with The Rock, though I think it's more his movies than his wrestling career.

    Will Smith

    I decided to give him an easy one, though you gotta love how he referenced '90s Will Smith instead of anything recent.

  15. She has way too much angst for a 12-year-old.
