Thread: Stephen Colbert gives Coachella the 'Colbert Bump'...

  1. #1

    Default Stephen Colbert gives Coachella the 'Colbert Bump'...

    earlier tonight on The Colbert Report, TV on the Radio was a guest, & Stephen Colbert name-dropped the Coachella festival, mentioning that it was headlined by Paul McCartney... ironically, he didn't mention TVOTR as playing the fest, as it only came up in conversation about macca & the colbert bump...

    Do I sense another Colbert-Stewart-Conan fight on the horizon over who REALLY gave Coachella the bump? That would not be a bad thing at all.

    First we have the mainstream Grammy crowd, and now we have the news tools who don't really get current events but like hollering at "The Word".

    What the fuck are you talking about? Are questioning Colbert's legitmacy as a journalist, or are you trying to say that he's not hip enough to name-drop Coachella? Colbert has more indie-cred than you'll ever have, asshole.

    I'm surprised here, usually Mister DVNO makes sense.

    Alas, he's completely off on this one.

    "So there it is. Will McCartney rule Coachella, or will he put it to sleep, much like headliner Jack Johnson did last year? Is his latest foray into noisy rock refreshing, or are you likely to loop up The Fireman's more ambient soundscaping? Has Stephen Colbert breathed a pop-cultural spark into an ex-Beatle?"

    He will rule the weekend

    Nah, you guys are misunderstanding me. I like Stephen Colbert. I just think that just as some of you would be upset that people who tuned into the Grammys to watch Katy Perry were exposed to a Coachella ad, I'm a little annoyed that those who watch Colbert while waiting for Mind of Mencia were exposed to a Coachella Colbert Bump.

    I'm aware. I'm not annoyed with Coachella being promoted more heavily I just had a very brief "why market to this audience?" moment. At least I confined it to a post and didn't make a thread. Talk about sharks circling in wait.

    Dane Cook standup special then, whatever. You get my point.
