Cast of 'The Office' jokes with Warren Buffett

Billionaire Warren Buffett recruits the cast of television's "The Office" to entertain Berkshire Hathaway shareholders.

In a humorous video that opened Saturday's annual shareholder meeting, the cast of "The Office" participated in a skit introducing Buffett as the successor to Steve Carell's character.

Buffett told employees of Dunder Mifflin's Scranton office that he thought the company could produce a significant turnaround once Carell's character left. But Carell didn't seem to catch the insult because he said Buffett's speech pattern had lulled him to sleep.

When another Dunder employee asked the 80-year-old Buffett for some of his elixir of youth, the billionaire said only Class A Berkshire shareholders get that. Class A shares sell for about $125,000 apiece.

Buffett's friend Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared in a cartoon spoof of his "Terminator" films.
