Colbert Gets Lucky As Video Goes Viral

eacting to the cancellation of their scheduled appearance on his late-night show, Stephen Colbert berated the rock group Daft Punk, then launched into a hilarious music video to end all music videos featuring Daft Punk's hit Get Lucky and an assortment of celebrities including Hugh Laurie, Jeff Bridges, Jimmy Fallon, Bryan Cranston, Jon Stewart and Matt Damon. Colbert, who danced to the Daft Punk music throughout, even appeared to boogie onto the Radio City Music Hall set of America's Got Talent and into the office of former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger (who called security). Today's (Friday) New York Times reported that MTV had threatened to cancel Daft Punk's appearance on its Video Music Awards if the group appeared on Colbert's show. Viacom, which owns both MTV and Comedy Central, the cable-TV network that airs Colbert's show, declined to interfere, the Times said, but Columbia Records, Daft Punk's record label reportedly advised the group not to risk its appearance on the video awards telecast.
