Stephen Colbert Gets In Fireplace During Costas Interview (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"The Colbert Report" is off this week, but in case you needed a reminder of how great Colbert is, please watch the video him climbing in a fireplace during an interview with Bob Costas. You'd think there'd be a reasonable explanation or that it was part of an elaborate bit. But you'd be wrong. It's just Colbert being awesome (don't worry, it's a fake fire), much to the delight of Costas. (Thanks Jake!)

WATCH:



And if that wasn't enough for you, here's a picture of of Bob Costas riding a stuffed moose. The interview teases it a bit, but for the full segment we'll have to wait for Colbert's special covering the games. We're sure there's some sort of context.
