Nardwuar has interviewed everyone from Jay-Z to Lady Gaga, and now Pharrell turns the tables on the Canadian journalist. The Neptunes producer and his team of researchers dig into the Human Serviette’s past, presenting him with several gifts including a bow tie made of cheese, an iPhone case with Vancouver’s Lions Gate Bridge, and the 1969 book The Peter Principle.
The i am OTHER founder also gives him the sheet music for “Here’s a Ho! Vancouver,” which Pharrell credits for starting the ratchet movement. Pharrell teaches him how to sing the “ho” ad-libs, and Narduar tries to replicate it, which gets a laugh out of P.
He also gifts him with ancient Nard oil and rolls out a poster of Nardwuar’s dream girl Heather Locklear. “You better get the lotion ready for this one,” jokes Pharrell, while saluting his investigative skills.
“I think you are a genius freak of nature when it comes to music and it comes to history,” says Pharrell. “Whoever you have doing research needs to consider a job for the CIA.”
