Imagine an anti-aging cream so good it turns grown-ups back into children. Last week, Kiehl's and Paramount teamed up to promote Zoolander 2 ahead of its Feb. 12 launch with a real-life "Derek Zoolander Center for People Who Don't Age Good." A play on the first movie's "Derek Zoolander's Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good," the experiential stunt—temporarily set up in New York's West Village—offered visitors a ridiculous tutorial at the hands of (naturally) male models.

All this sporty-bro-bonding is kind of strained and silly, but overall the tone is probably in tune with the target audience. Besides, Baldwin's slimy smile and smug delivery never get old.
