Snootchie bootchies! Filmmakers Kevin Smith and Malcolm Ingram share stories of how they met in anticipation of their new documentary, Clerk. The hilarious film, which debuted at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival, celebrates the life of Smith, charting his journey from New Jersey to Sundance to the greater pop culture lexicon.

Speaking to Consequence contributor Andrew Buss, Smith and Ingram discuss their respective paths through Hollywood, and how they’ve both gone on to work with their idols. It’s an unpredictable chat that finds Smith and Ingram recalling impromptu encounters with everyone from Madonna to Winona Ryder to even Maya Angelou.

So, grab a Mooby muffin and watch above. For more Smith-related hijinks, revisit our definitive 20th anniversary oral history on Clerks: The Animated Series, which tells the whole story behind the cruelly underrated ABC series from 2000.
