Internet meme becomes reality in a very funny sketch with Rainn Wilson
(CBS News) The character of Dwight Schrute has not only become a much-loved staple of television, but also a series of popular memes entitled "Schrute Facts" based on his series of "False!" retorts to just about anything. Which is why it's so great to see actor Rainn Wilson bring the character and meme to life in the real world by reading some random tweets in the video above and giving his trademark analysis and thoughts about their validity.

The extremely witty sketch was posted by College Humor as a part of their ongoing Malarious series that brings comedy and celebrities together to fight the not-funny-at-all and very real problem of malaria worldwide. They write about the Malarious project:
