Stephen Colbert Addresses Daft Punk Debacle

In case you missed Stephen Colbert’s hilarious dance routine, I’ve kindly posted it below for your viewing enjoyment. Colbert finally addressed the behind-the-scenes story about Daft Punk’s no-show, explaining that the original interview had insane parameters, but Colbert felt up for the challenge. According to Colbert, they insisted on not speaking or performing, and he designed a format that he felt would comedically fill the silence. But the plan tanked when MTV forced exclusivity, as the music duo was set to perform at the VMAs and MTV didn’t want to over-saturate. Colbert took matters into his own hands for the seven minute segment and performed an “interpretive” dance. Watch below.
