Nardwuar Got Yung Lean To Smile

By Peter Helman / July 23, 2014

Yung Lean — internet-beloved #sadboy, bucket-hat wearer, Arizona Iced Tea enthusiast, and teenaged Swedish rapper — has now joined the hallowed ranks of artists interviewed by Nardwuar The Human Serviette. Although a recent New Yorker profile insisted that Yung Lean and the Sad Boys self-consciously try to keep up melancholic appearances, Nardwuar manages to make them all crack up within the first minute of the interview (by singing happy birthday in Swedish, in case you were wondering). Maybe Yung Lean’s crushing emotional despair is no match for Nardwuar’s ridiculousness, or maybe he was just in a good mood because it was his 18th birthday. Either way, it’s a fun interview, and you can watch it below.
