Justin Bieber gets biopicized (wink wink)

By Liz Kelly

I often find myself wondering where did that Justin Bieber kid come from. I mean, I know he was -- much like Celine Dion -- inflicted on us by Canada, but beyond that and a vague idea that the kid did some subway busking and is kind of a klutz, well, he remains a mystery wrapped in an enigma hidden behind a fringe of heavy sandy brown hair. And I even read his memoir.

Lucky for me, and you, the Upright Citizens Brigade has stepped in to fill our Bieber knowledge void with the biopic "8 Kilometer: The Gritty Life Story of Justin Bieber" -- or at least the ridiculously well-done trailer for it:

As the folks over at Best Week Ever noted, "Kudos to the casting people for getting a actor who looks exactly like Justin Bieber... maybe a tad bit more masculine."

And thank you to the folks at UCB for this line, "Foreheads are where it's at Bieber. That's just a fact."

(And if you haven't had enough ragging on the Bieb, "South Park" also recently killed him off in this NSFW clip.)

There's an old joke:

Q: How do you get 100 Canadians out of a swimming pool?

A: "Would all of you get out of the pool, please?"

We are not a people to "inflict." It would never be "inflicted," Liz Kelly.

We *offered* him and America accepted him - no, more than that - America greedily grabbed the little imp right out of our hands.

You're welcome. And thank you. And also, can we get back in the pool now?
