Top 10 Funniest WIRED Autocomplete Segments

These are weird questions with even weirder answers. Welcome to MsMojo and today we’ll be counting down our picks for Top 10 Funniest WIRED’s Autocomplete Interviews.

For this list, we’ll be looking at our favorite segments from interviews on the popular YouTube series. Whether it’s the questions, the answers or the celebrities, you’re bound to get a chuckle.

#10: Taraji P. Henson & Tyler Perry

These two actors have two big personalities, making for one hilarious interview. Right off the bat, they start throwing shade that lasts the entire segment. Of course, it’s all in good fun and they also complement each other, like when Tyler says Taraji looks like Diana Ross, which prompts some singing. Our favourite part of the interview is when Taraji start aggressively answering Tyler’s questions for him. She actually answers most of the questions in the segment, but she’s just so enthusiastic that Perry doesn’t seem to mind.

#9: Will Arnett

Where do we even start with this glorious mess of an interview? The “Arrested Development” star talks in the third person and his answers seem to get funnier and funnier. Most guests on the show simply answer the questions, but Will Arnett turns the segment into a performance, and a true piece of art. He cries, self-deprecates and he has about eight existential crises, give or take. Fans of “BoJack Horseman” will really appreciate the segment because it feels like a bonus episode of the cartoon. Just close your eyes and you can practically see Bojack.

#8: Steve Carell & Kristen Wiig

What do you get when you ask two comedians strange and grammatically incorrect questions about themselves? Well, pure comedic gold of course. Who the is Kristen Wiig shirt? A question that will now plague the minds of philosophers, English teachers and fashion designers alike. The question sends Steve and Kristen into a fit of giggles but, fear not ladies and gentleman, for the answer to this mind boggling riddle is ‘John’. If that doesn’t summarize the tone of this interview then we don’t know what does. Between the grammar and the answers, you’re sure to be laughing by the end.

#7: Will Ferrell & Amy Poehler

Two SNL stars in one interview, what more could you want? This video could practically be an SNL skit with Amy’s wit and Will’s crazy stories and sarcasm. There was a glitch with the audio in this interview, but it just adds to the charm, as you can hear the crew laughing behind the camera. The most shocking thing to come out of this interview is that Amy Poehler is Jack Black in Tenacious D. We can’t believe we never noticed! And remember, if you ever want to directly ask Will questions, just e-mail him at

#6: Samuel L. Jackson

This interview may not be suitable for younger views. It probably has more ‘beeps’ than any other WIRED interview, but what did you expect… It’s Samuel L. f**king Jackson! Profanity aside, his answers are informative, to the point and really interesting! We find out how he got his purple lightsaber in Star Wars and that he likes anime, especially of the hentai variety. On a serious note, it’s pretty unbelievable that he doesn’t have an Oscar. The man has been in the business for almost 50 years!

#5: Jeff Goldblum

Jeff Goldblum is a national treasure, so naturally his interview is golden. He is just so unapologetically, well, Jeff Goldblum. The actor’s eccentric ways have completely won over the internet and it really shines here since he’s left to his own devices. In usual Goldblum fashion, he teaches us a few new words, like fumfer, goes on a tangent about a multiverse scenario, and ensures that his interview is complete thanks to his lovely singing. Everyone should take note about the adorable way Jeff talks about his wife Emilie. If you ever meet someone who talks about you that way, put a ring on it!

#4: Kristen Bell & Melissa McCarthy

What do you get when you put two hilarious actresses in the room together? A spicy interview full of inappropriate answers and casual boob grabs. Kristen holds nothing back, even for simple yes or no questions like “is Kristen Bell naturally blond.” Kristen puts this question to rest permanently by proudly declaring that the curtains match the drapes… no one is going to argue with that. Melissa had a slightly different approach and her answers were funny one-liners. Hopefully, these two firecrackers work together again sometime soon.

#3: ‘Stranger Things’ Cast

This Netflix original series has taken the world by storm ever since its premiere in 2016 and so has its cast. Gaten Matarazzo and Joe Keery got to do a lot of scenes together for the second season and it’s clear they bonded. They are hilarious together and Gaten literally falls to the ground laughing when the internet asks if Joe is pregnant. The answer to that of course is no, science has only gotten so far. Gaten also shares a ton of “Stranger Things” lore, so this interview is a must see for fans of the show.

#2: Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Pratt

Ever since these two co-starred in “Passengers.” we’ve gotten a series of hilarious interviews and this is the cherry on top. They share a very similar sense of humor that involves a lot insults: they insult themselves and each other mercilessly and it makes for some great comedy. The questions were especially wacky this segment, but luckily we found out that Chris is in fact alive, at least on the inside, and that he is the worst Chris. A big congratulations on Jennifer’s engagement to the anonymous internet stranger who had the guts to propose through Google... a true modern love story!

Before we reveal our top pick here are a few honorable mentions.

The Try Guys

‘Rogue One’ Cast

John Krasinski

#1: Ryan Reynolds & Jake Gyllenhaal

Did they just become best friends? We think they did! Seriously, these two could go on a comedy tour together and we would eat it up. Ryan is his usual Deadpooly self and Jake is clearly having the time of his life. Ryan even tries to make out with Jake, but is sadly rejected. The answers aren’t exactly informative either: we don’t think Ryan actually punched a couple hundred orphans or that Jake eats baby pandas. If you want to know the actual answers to some of these questions, we guess you’ll just have to Google them.
