Ben Stiller showed Elton John his trademark “Blue Steel” pose from Zoolander on Friday’s “Graham Norton Show,” and the singer joked that it looks like Victoria Beckham’s permanent facial expression. Watch the funny video below!

Stiller appeared on the British talk show alongside his Zoolander 2 co-stars Owen Wilson and Penelope Cruz, and the actor explained the step-by-step method of rocking “Blue Steel.” “It’s a six part process,” Stiller joked. “It starts really with the thought, the inception of it.”

He added, “Secondly, it’s starting to feel it in the lower part of your body and then allowing it to come up. And then really pushing through from the diaphragm, up through the throat, and then out through the nose.” Stiller went on to explain that the most important part of mastering the face is to do it “without thinking at all,” adding, “You just have to clear your mind.”

Stiller then displayed “Blue Steel,” to which John responded, “You know what it is. It’s Victoria Beckham.” His seeming jab at the former Spice Girl elicited some “oohs” from the audience, but the legendary singer clarified, “No, I mean she’s got that look right down, always.” John then pouted his lips and struck a pose, to which an excited Stiller shouted, “There it is!” Watch the funny video from the “Graham Norton Show” below.
