Meet Ben Gleib as Ben Gleib meets the Twilight fans

Oh, wait. I got this wrong. This is obviously footage of Ben Gleib talking to fans silly enough to stand in line for hours for the new iPhone. No. Oops. Sorry about this. It's actually Gleib with Star Wars fanatics camped out in line. Oh, gosh golly whoopsie daisy. It's Comic-Con. No? Maybe we should have stuck with the original title, since the latest Twilight book-to-movie had its Hollywood premiere, and Gleib stared straight into the Eclipse to confront the ridiculous Team Edward and Team Jacob fanatics. I mean, you know and I know this is all a bit ridiculous, but what makes fanatics like these (or Harry Potter fans, even) extraordinarily odd to observe is the fact that there should be no suspense in anticipating a movie franchise that follows a book series. But what do I know? Roll tape.

And now that Ben and I both feel like we've wasted everyone's time, let's try to salvage this post with some TV footage of Gleib doing what he gets paid to do at the Hollywood Improv in this clip from Last Call with Carson Daly (which, yes, every time someone types this, millions of people make bewildered faces, we get it). Finally, someone defending delicious beverages! Team Ben!
