Michael Cera's twenty-minute-long near-death experience in Denver

Did you know that a month ago, actor Michael Cera nearly died near Red Rocks? Us either! But he told the tale on last night's ep of Late Night with David Letterman before pimping Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World.

Seems that during an ill-considered night hike, Cera and pals got lost for twenty whole minutes -- long enough for them to turn on each other -- before being rescued by light-helmeted idiots/angels. Watch the amusing results below.
