How funny can world Chess No. 1 get?

Hello Everyone,

With World Chess No. 1 Magnus Carlsen signing up with G-Star to become a fashion model we couldn't help remember this hilarious interview he gave with a remark regarding Veselin Topalov's flashy shirt.

And, there were a whole lot of more funny answers. However, despite this video being an old one when Carlsen was not near the No. 1 mark, it seems the talented Magnus has remained as unassuming as ever.

Also watch out for all those answers about his parents talking to him about the 'Kings and Queens' and his expecting to finish last in a tournament!

Check out this video with the English subtitles. It's fun.
