Billy Eichner has a little predicament. He gifted the world with Julianne Moore crying on cue in the middle of Times Square for tips and now? Well, how do you top that?

"We're trying every week to top ourselves," he told E! News' Will Marfuggi at GQ's Men of the Year celebration. "Next week we have Will Ferrell in a Christmas segment, we also have an obstacle course that's going to be slightly controversial, I don't want to give it away."

A controversial obstacle course you say? Hmmm…

Eichner revealed he got Moore, who took home an Oscar for Still Alice, to be on Billy on the Street via Twitter. She was following him—"I don't know why, I guess she was a fan."—so he sent her a direct message. "I knew if I went through a manager or publicist, it never would've happened because it's Julianne Moore," he explained. It was just a few weeks after she won the Oscar and she got back to him within an hour. The rest? TV history that you can see above.
