COLBERT GETS DAFT PUNK’D
What happens when you cancel a date with Stephen Colbert?
He dances his pants off!
Earlier this week Stephen Colbert announced “Stephen Colbchella“, his annual summer music festival (obviously a funny take on Coachella). Set to appear, who else but the band that sings what people are calling “The Song of the Summer”; Daft Punk.
They’re going to be at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 25th and sited “contractual obligations” to MTV which had asked them to skip the Colbert performance.
Of course, Colbert was understandably “upset” with MTV and decided to take matters into his own hands.
When life hands you lemons, you make MUSIC. Or in this case, a music video where you lip-sync the words with your very famous friends. (haha)
This is hilarious.
Before debuting the now viral sensation, Colbert said about Daft Punk: “They’re not here tonight and I have accepted a lot of money from our Colbchella sponsor Hyundai, so not delivering the song of the summer is a real kick, I got Daft Punk’d”
Here it is, enjoy!
