News: Jack White
On last night’s Colbert Report, the ”Dr Pepper Presents StePhest Colbchella ’011: Rock You Like a Thirst-icane” series of music-themed episodes took Stephen to Nashville, where he sat down with Third Man Records mastermind Jack White.
What followed was a rather hilarious exchange between Colbert and the Dead Weather/Raconteurs man & former White Stripes frontman White, wherein the musically deluded host tried to convince Jack of his greatness with a lightning round karaoke jam of pretty much every Bob Seger song every written. He also asks the nine-time Grammy winner “What’s your price for your integrity?” and turns Seven Nation Army into a yogurt jingle, in a musical Twilight Zone moment too weird not to be seen for yourself.
There are apparently two parts to go in the series chronicling Colbert’s attempts to get his musical career jumpstarted, with White’s assistance. “Tune in tomorrow as I close the deal and land my record contract,” Stephen concludes.
Big thanks to The Audio Perv for the hookup!
