Do not come for Sasha Flute if you do not want your ass handed to you. That’s the lesson fictional anchorman Ron Burgundy is learning today. Lizzo challenged Will Ferrell to a jazz flute-off last November, a challenge he accepted in character back in January. In what was almost certainly not promotion for his new podcast, Burgundy accepted Lizzo’s challenge and fired off this tasty riff.
Lizzo has now offered her rejoinder: a shot-for-shot remake of the jazz flute scene in Anchorman, this time with 90 percent more use of both paper straws and the word “bitch.” Este Haim fills in for , as the awed naif to Lizzo’s accomplished flautist. Lizzo plays her own single, “Juice,” and flutes her ass all over the club. She even flutes under the bathroom stall door. Bitch.
