John Yoo Pranked By Australian Comedy Team (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Via Boing Boing comes a video from the Australian comedy show "The Chaser's War on Everything," that shows a man dressed as an Abu Ghraib prisoner disrupting one of John Yoo's classes (he currently lectures at Berkeley and Chapman University). Yoo, formerly of the Department of Justice, played a key role in the Bush administration's justification of torture.

The actor climbed on a desk while Yoo was discussing constitutionality and said, "I've got one question, how long can I be required to stand here 'til it counts as torture?" When Yoo ended the class and a student yelled at the actor to leave he said, "I'd love to move but every time I do my balls get buzzed."

He was later physically escorted out of the classroom by a school official.
