Jimmy Kimmel Live planned for an E.R. reunion on Tuesday, but could only land George Clooney.

Just like his character, Dr. Gregory House, Laurie suggested an uncommon medical procedure to bring Kimmel back to life. The actor instructed Clooney, a.k.a. Dr. Doug Ross, to "give him the 'Rapper's Delight.'"

You've never seen Clooney get this goofy, and his rap skills were quite impressive. They even revived Kimmel. "You saved this man's life through hip-hop," Laurie exclaimed. "Dr. Ross, you're a genius."

"You're a genius for thinking I'm a genius," Clooney quipped back.
