Anderson Cooper is known to have some fun during his “The Ridiculist” segment on “Anderson Cooper 360.”
Well, on Wednesday night, the Silver Fox lost it, and couldn’t control his laughter after he joked about French actor Gerard Depardieu, who is accused of urinating on a plane.
He lost control after joking: “At least it wasn’t Depard-doo.”
“Sorry, that made me giggle every time I read it,” Cooper said of his joke, before laughing up a storm with other people in the studio.
The veteran newscaster continued to laugh, and had to wipe away tears after his many puns made him laugh so hard that he couldn’t talk.
As he tried to compose himself, Cooper repeated his joke, before he was consumed by the giggles once again.
“Sorry this has never actually happened to me,” he said of the laugh attack that lasted about 57 seconds.
Depardieu, the source of Cooper’s jokes, was reportedly thrown off a CityJet flight after he stood up and urinated on the floor, after the cabin crew told the actor he couldn’t use the bathroom because the plane was on the runway, waiting to takeoff.
A passenger on the plane was interviewed on France’s Europe-1 radio, who said his plane was delayed nearly two hours due to the incident. “I need to piss, I need to piss,” the actor said, according to the passenger.
The airline took to Twitter to address the issue, saying, “As you may have seen on the news, we are busy mopping the floor of one of our planes this morning…”
And they also wanted to give out a helpful reminder, telling their Twitter followers, “We’d also like to remind all passengers that our planes are fully equipped with toilet facilities…”
As for Cooper, he was able to regroup to finish the 4-minute segment, but not before he charmed the world with the AC giggle.
