Video of the Day: Ben Stiller Explains Twitter to 89-Year-Old Mickey Rooney


Taking a break from acting (and perhaps trying to net new followers for @RedHourBen), Ben Stiller has found a new career playing social media guru to his older Hollywood brethren. In this video, he shows Twitter to Mickey Rooney, who initially finds the practice morally questionable (“It’s not wholesome.”), but eventually becomes comfortable enough with it to start rhyming (“Well as long as you enjoy it, and you Twitter, don’t hit ‘er, Twitter.”). The funniest thing about this video is that everyone who’s on Twitter has had the exact same conversation with all of their family members who are over 50. [via BuzzFeed]
