Did Stephen Colbert Let MTV's Secret Slip In A Bout of Daft Punk Anger?

Daft Punk, Stephen Colbert is mad at you. You were supposed to be on his show, and then you cancelled, leaving him in the lurch! Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter were supposed to join Colbert on his Tuesday-night show, but didn’t, much to the host’s dismay.

Referring to the dance music duo as "Click and Clack" he explained to his viewers on Tuesday they had been booked a month prior to the show. "Fun fact," he exclaimed, "No one told me until two hours ago."

So what was Colbert to do? Well, to spite… everyone, he decided to let his audience – and the world – in on a little secret: "This network is owned by Viacom, which is also the owner of MTV. Apparently, Daft Punk are going to make a surprise appearance on the MTV Video Music Awards. Don't tell anyone."

Now we obviously don’t know if that’s true or not, but if it is, it’s a pretty funny way to get your own back. He must have been excited to have the musicians on the show considering their elusive behaviour towards the media, and this last-minute snub must of hurt.

Instead, and in a good-natured video, the audience were treated to a video of him and various celebs dancing to the band’s smash hit, Get Lucky. Joined by House actor Hugh Laurie and Hollywood stalwart Jeff Bridges as well as Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston he also barged in on Jimmy Fallon, John Stewart and Charlie Rose.
