The Colbert Report took a break from politics on Tuesday night, and instead hosted one of the most star-studded dance parties cable television has ever seen.
Matt Damon, Hugh Laurie, Jeff Bridges, Bryan Cranston, Jimmy Fallon, the Rockettes, Henry Kissinger, Jon Stewart via satellite and the entire production of America's Got Talent (to name a few...) all got moving to Daft Punk's summer hit Get Lucky. WATCH.
Daft Punk was scheduled to perform their song on the Comedy Central show as part of Colbchella, "the anti-establishment, convention-destroying rock and roll ethos brought to you by Hyundai," but had to cancel due to an an exclusivity conflict with MTV. "You see, we booked Click and Clack over here about a month ago," Colbert explained on Tuesday night's show. "Well, apparently, Daft Punk are going to make a surprise appearance on the MTV Video Music Awards. Don't tell anybody, because fun fact: No one told me until two o' clock yesterday."
Though he didn't participate in the dance party, Jobs star Ashton Kutcher also made a cameo on the show upon Colbert's pronouncement that he had been "Daft Punk'd."
In place of the group, Robin Thicke performed his summer jam Blurred Lines.
