World of ColbertCraft. No, it's not a real game. Yes, it's just a bit of clever believable marketing. But you get to hear Stephen say "Wiiiiiiiii," and that's a keeper.

Wow, all 5 of those links were a waste of my time. I thought maybe just 4 would be, but yeah, all 5.

A fifteen second clip of a widely-watched TV show and some filler links? Ordinarily I'm not one to complain about post quality, but, uh...

Seemed funny this morning halfway into my first cup of coffee.

Um, except, Spacelegoman, these aren't clips from the TV show and thus NOT "widely watched"...they're little shorts Colbert did for a game conference, the link to which you dismissed as "filler."

Yeah, probably a crap post, but the Colbert Report clip about D&D Online makes me giggle like the 13 year-old D&D geek that I still feel like I am in my mid 30's.

I wish someone would post it to Youtube. The sound isn't working for me on the GameVideos player.

smackfu, try moving the volume slider. I had the same problem and that fixed it.

Thanks, that did fix it.

Now that I got it working, what's with the weird cuts in the video?

I think we're seeing a poorly edited version of a much larger presentation. Enjoyed it.

I was expecting so much more. Is this something you would need to have polyhedral dice to understand?

We may need a new tag, NSFH or something, to save those special moments at home for something more funny, productive or something.

Also, who is this painfully unfunny guy Colbert?

Laotic, you're on notice.

That wasn't real?

Always finish your first cup before posting.

Counterpoint: Colbert is very smart and funny.

Thanks Omarr. Between this and the D&D segment, I think it's safe to say Colbert is a huge nerd.

Ha! The full version has a Spore joke.

"Late last week we coughed up a morsel of Stephen Colbert's minute-long MI6 presentation. We admitted it wasn't hilarious, but that it showed promise."

No, it showed you let the summer intern near Final Cut Pro.

I have to give props to Stephen for droping Len Lakofka's name. Now here is a crime, there is a Wikipedia article for Lendore Isles but not Len.
