Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Confused

I know the Oscar nominations were already announced, but I'd like to ask that the Academy reconvene to consider this scene for best original screenplay. Starring QVC host Shawn Killinger, fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi, and a very tacky collection of shirts.

Shawn Killinger: It almost kind of looks like what the earth looks like when you're a bazillion miles away from the planet moon.

Isaac Mizrahi: Yes, I just squinted at it

The planet moon. From the moon looking back at the earth

From the planet moon. from the planet moon...

Isn't the moon a star?

No, the moon is a planet, darling.

The sun is a star. Is the moon really a planet?

Well, the moon is a planet, honey. It's a planet —

Don't look at me like that. The sun Is a star. Is the sun not a star?

I don't know what the sun is.

The sun is a star, isn't it?

We don't know what the sun is.

(together) The sun is a star.

The moon is not a planet.

The moon is a planet!

I knew it! I knew it!

Excuse me?

You were trying to take me down that road. The moon is not a planet!

Excuse me, Chunky?

Is this a brief moment of legitimate surrealism or a carefully scripted one-act play? Did an otherwise legit YouTube channel decide to troll us all? I honestly don't care, because this is amazing.

Your move, absurdist playwright Tom Stoppard.

Update: We originally had the wrong name for QVC host Shawn Killinger.
