(Newser) – Clips of George Clooney getting silly in Darfur have become the latest viral video craze. During a recent trip with NBC’s Dateline, the UN messenger of peace gave a video tour of his room. “That’s the water bucket that you use to flush the toilet,” he says. “Nice.”

He goes on: “I pay people to cut my hair. I pay them a lot of money. You’d think it would last longer than just a short trip to Chad. I’m sounding like Andy Rooney,” he notes—and launches into a mean impression.
