Remember how George Clooney is the King of Pranks? And then remember how George Clooney said that he wanted to prank Brad Pitt so hard that it would end his career? Well, that moment may have been last night.

Okay, not really, but George Clooney totally pulled a fast one on Brad Pitt at the Golden Globes last night.

Brad Pitt has been walking with a cane for a couple weeks now and when George Clooney went onstage at the Golden Globes last night to give an introduction to Brad’s movie, “Moneyball” he himself walked onstage with Brad’s cane!

Omigod, someone get the “Prank Globes” awards on the phone, no wait, get Ashton Kutcher and the producers of Punk’d on the phone, Clooney is prank’n it up!

George, walking onstage with the cane before twirling it and smiling in that sly-dog way that only Clooney can do, Clooney joked, “I have to give it back to him,” meaning Brad, as the shot cut-away to a chuckling Brad in the audience, “He can’t make it to the bar otherwise.”

Awww, cane pranks, y’all. Nothing like a torn ACL to get you into the mood for jokes!

Speaking of bromance…Brad and George have one of the great lasting bromances in Hollywood, except for maybe Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, but when Clooney accepted his award last night for Best Actor in a Drama, a category where Brad was also nominated, Clooney got serious and gushed over his pal Brad.

“I wanted to say it’s nice to see Brad,” say Clooney, “it’s nice to be able to tell him not just what wonderful work he’s doing in two films this year, but what wonderful work he does in the rest of the world to the rest of the people.”
