Well, this is awkward.

As Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce has already turned into one of the messiest in Hollywood history (it hasn't even been a full week since she filed), let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we?

During an appearance on Zach Galifiniakis' Between Two Ferns series for Funny or Die in 2014, The Hangover star doesn't hold back when it comes to trading barbs with Pitt.

As both camps release conflicting reports of what led up to the split - "Brad was blindsided", "Angelina is using a war room in a rented luxury property to strategise with her team", "He was drinking heavily and smoking a lot of marijuana". The list goes on.

This clip shows new light on a two-year old interview.

When Galifiniakis presents him with a bong, the following exchange occurs:

Pitt: "Jeez, I wonder what that is."

Galifianakis: "It’s a bassoon."

Pitt: “I thought it was a bowling ball. You know, I’m a dad now."

Galifianakis: "That’s a bassoon—you can play them for your kids."

Pitt: "Yeah, we don’t bassoon in my house anymore."

But the most relevant piece comes when Galifianakis asks: "Is it hard for you to maintain a suntan? Because you live in your wife’s shadow."
