Last week, after the auction of his portrait raised $26,000 for DonorsChoose.org, Stephen Colbert announced that his BFFSM Jimmy Fallon would be generously matching the amount. But on last night's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy claimed he never made the pledge, prompting Stephen to appear onstage and angrily goad Jimmy to come through with the money. Rather than me describing what happened next, why don't you just watch the video for yourself, and I'll donate the unused keystrokes to DonorsChoose.org?
For real, let's make this happen, guys! Click here to read more about DonorsChoose.org's Jimmy Fallon/Stephen Colbert Project and to make your contribution. As of this writing the total is up to just under five grand, so we've got some work to do if we're going to hit $26,000 by Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday.
As the DonorsChoose.org page makes clear, this is not an April Fools joke.
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30/10:30c.
