The Colbert Report

I've already talked about The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, so here's an entry about the spin-off show. The Colbert Report was originally supposed to be a gag bit shown on The Daily Show as a spoof of such punditry shows as Crossfire (deceased) and The O'Reilly Factor (barely clinging to life).

It's essentially the opposite of The Daily Show in 'viewpoints', though if you watch it you can clearly see the satire (see: The Word). And more often than not, Steven Colbert comes off more witty than his predaccesor, Stewart. I tell you, this is a rare moment in history. Never does a Spin-Off ever become as successful as it's parent show, let alone possibly better. Not to mention being showed in adjacent time slots every day.

Last night showed exactly just how popular the show had gotten. Earlier, Colbert did a bit for the 42nd district of California, which is essentially Hollywood(ville). He got up in front of a greenscrean and did a few Lightsaber moves, at the end saying "Lucas'll edit that scene in later, right?"

This caused an explosion on the internets. The tubes became clogged with videos of that same fight scene, but with things super-imposed on the background. Colbert fought several different monsters (and bears aplenty), and some were creative enough to switch up the scene to show him insituations where he doesn't have a lightsaber, but swords and other weapons.

Google video it. They're out there somewhere.

Well this eventually turned into The Greenscreen Challenge (which wasn't a contest), and a mass of more movies flooded in. And last night they showed the two top finalists. One was from some woman in Ohio or something like that, and the other was from George Lucas himself. And both entries were admittedly awesome. Colbert gave the winning title to the the other woman out of satire, but ironically I liked hers over Lucas.

But yeah. That was just about the coolest thing I've ever seen on a fake news show. Next to the infrequent but deadly ownings by Stewart.

...with all these marbles in my mouth.

I'm currently addicted to classic Weird Al Yankovic. Mostly because I can't seem find a copy of Straight Out of Lynwood. Not that I'm complaining. Amish Paradise is always awesome after 20 listens.
