Billy Eichner's Meryl Streep vs. Glenn Close Street Poll (VIDEO)

Billy Eichner's new Fuse TV show "Billy on the Street" is exactly the type of man-on-the-street show that even haters of man-on-the-street shows can love. Funny or Die (who co-produces the show) has released a new clip from the show of Billy asking random pedestrians their thoughts on pop culture, which ends in exasperation as Billy cannot fathom why a random man would choose Glenn Close over Meryl Streep.

In the midst of the rare Oscar season when Close and Streep, who have been compared throughout their careers, are going head-to-head. But when Billy encounters a man who is strangely confident about his favoritism of Albert Nobbs over the Iron Lady, Billy can barely hear the words without being driven to fits of rage.

If you're lucky enough to get Fuse TV (and due to classic, stubborn Time Warner posturing, many are not), we highly recommend watching "Billy on the Street." If not, plenty of clips are available on Funny Or Die.
