An Extra 24

I've been looking for this clip for some time now (ever since the first week of last December to be exact) as it crosses a couple of my favorite pop culture items. The TV show "24" and the comedian Ricky Gervais. For those who may not yet know, Gervais is the creator and star of the original version of "The Office" and also the equally hilarious series "Extras." It turns out he and his writing partner Stephen Merchant are also huge fans of Kiefer Sutherland and his show "24." Merchant actually had a cameo appearance in a "24" episode last season, but according to Entertainment Weekly the "24" producers felt that Gervais was too recognizable when he played a White House aid, so they cut the scene. And knowing this would happen, the crew decided to have fun with it. It's an extra on the "24" Season 6 DVD and today I found it floating around on YouTube. God bless the internet.
