Robert DeNiro announces that mudslides have destroyed Denver on 30 Rock (VIDEO)

Last night's hilarious episode of 30 Rock came with a local bonus: the opportunity to hear Robert DeNiro somberly declare that Denver has been wiped off the map!

The DeNiro subplot involved a scheme to prerecord disaster announcements, with Bobby D roped in after Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) threatens to spread the rumor that he's English.

Shortly thereafter, DeNiro intones, "Two days ago, when people thought of a mudslide, they just thought of getting drunk in an Applebee's. But now, we know it as the thing that destroyed Denver." Watch the episode below; the Denver reference is in the second segment.
