Stephen Colbert: Late Show promo goes awry without 3-D

Posted on

We’re less than a month away from  Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and there are still kinks to work out in promotion. Well, not really.

The host appeared in a new promo for cinemas in which he tells moviegoers to toss on their 3-D glasses — but the production’s budget prohibited them for entering the bit into the third dimension.

“What? We couldn’t afford 3-D? Well now I look like an idiot,” he says. “Please tell me we still have the CGI dragon.” They do! Kind of. It’s a green ball. Don’t worry: The effects team can probably fix that in post.

Watch the promo above. Colbert’s Late Show premiere is Sept. 8 at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.
