Oops

Fox News accidentally mourns Robin Williams with fake Mrs. Doubtfire clip

In Mrs. Doubtfire, Robin Williams' cross-dressing disguise is good enough to fool his on-screen wife. And in the wake of the actor's tragic death, the getup was so convincing it fooled Fox News, too.

The cable channel ran a segment Monday night memorializing Williams that was filled with footage of him in his roles. Yet as Mediaite pointed out, one snippet credited to the aforementioned film actually comes from a random YouTube video of a guy dancing in his own nanny costume.

If it's any consolation to Fox, Williams would probably have found the humor in the mix-up. --Jon Terbush
