Apparently, George Clooney doesn’t like it that David Letterman is retiring from the talk show business this month. So much so that, on an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman last night, Clooney decided he’d stop Dave from “going anywhere” by handcuffing himself to him.
Once he’d done that, he then casually reached into his pocket and hurled the key to the handcuffs off into the audience, and then sat back down.
Unfortunately, though, Clooney may not have thought this all the way through as, once handcuffed, when Dave pointed out he wasn’t going anywhere either, Clooney replied “Well, that’s true. I hadn’t thought this all the way through. It could make for an awkward evening. Or not. Who knows”.
Watch Clooney handcuffing himself to David Letterman in the video below. Cute.
As for Letterman, his final show will air on May 20th. And then I’m going to cry.
