Stephen Colbert stock exchange apocalypse video

Posted on


Plans for Late Show with Stephen Colbert just took a turn for the worse now that the late-night host has hunkered down in his office following an apocalyptic Wednesday.

With the New York Stock Exchange going dark for several hours, grounded flights and “a totally unusable redesign of Seamless,” Colbert has locked himself in his office as the benevolent ruler of a post-apocalyptic world. And he’s come prepared, with over 60 bags of chips, bottled water, and three-hole punch paper. He’s even taken a queen, Vindiloo the chicken, who seems less pleased with being confined to the office than Colbert.

At least she posed for a bunker selfie:

Colbert seems to be taking to the apocalypse well thanks to his Mad Max-esque intern, but a Twilight Zone-inspired twist about his K-cup supply may make this new world a brutal place to live.
