Derek Zoolander is the "#1 Male Model In The World," according to his Instagram account. However, we all know him as Ben Stiller.

The classic comedy Zoolander took theaters by storm in 2001, spoofing the high-fashion modeling industry.

Bieber's album is just a few days away from it's much anticipated release, and much like he has been doing with his singles and tracklisting, Bieber has had a little help with the countdown.
