WATCH: George Clooney Handcuffs Himself to David Letterman


So George Clooney really, really, REALLY doesn't want David Letterman to retire as host from the "Late Show" this month.

So much so, in fact, the actor resorted to this during his appearance Thursday night ...

"Let me see your wrist. Let me see that just for a second here," said George Clooney on the "Late Show."

"Wait a minute, what is, no, no, okay ... Ugh," said David Letterman.

Well, desperate times call for desperate measures! Let's see you leave now, Dave!

As a writer for People so perfectly put it, "That's one way to stop David Letterman from retiring next week!"

But don't worry, Dave had a pretty good retort for George's sneaky attempt to trap him.

"Now, George, is this something leftover from the bachelor days?" asked Dave.

Ooh, do you need some ice for that burn, Georgie?! But, of course, this isn't the first, uhh, slightly kinky situation Dave has found himself in this week.

You've still got it, Dave, you sly fox, you.
