The Conversation: Norwegian Curling Pants Go Viral on Facebook

VIDEO: Diane Sawyer chats with Christoffer Svae from Norways curling team

From the second Norway's men's curling team hit the ice at the Vancouver Olympic Games, they've received plenty of attention. It's not necessarily for their curling, though they'll play for the Gold medal on Saturday. All eyes are on the team's multi-colored argyle pants.

The team's bold uniform is now going viral -- a Facebook group dedicated to the pants has over 480,000 members, and fans from around the world are eager to weigh in. "These pants ROCK (pun intended) har har!," one admirer wrote on the group's wall.

Today, Diane Sawyer talks with Norwegian Olympic curler Christoffer Svae, who introduced his teammates to the joys of argyle. She also heard from the creator of the Facebook group, Tony D'Orazio.
