Ok. Let’s re-emphasize the sort-of part.
Popular sites such as Reddit and Huffington Post were buzzing earlier this week with news regarding what appeared to be a special form of marketing regalia for the upcoming debut of the long-and-anxiously-awaited Late Show. Col-bears!
The adorable gummies were reportedly delivered to CBS offices by Stephen Colbert himself, after conducting interviews in their offices with a variety of TV news-anchors earlier this week.
The Huffington Post article also stated (as told by the signifcant other of someone who worked in the CBS offices):
“Apparently several anchors from local stations were sent to the CBS station today for their interviews with Colbert,” the user wrote in a later comment. “He was there all day.”
It is unclear whether it’s possible to obtain a pack of these “Col-bears” for yourself — for now, it seems like a tiny, chewy perk for CBS employees.
Whether or not any of us can ever get our hands on these chewy confections, this is a pretty cool story, especially due to knowing the former character “Stephen Colbert’s” notoriously well-known history with his avid anti-bear sentiments, expressed many times on The Colbert Report, in segments such as ‘Stephen Colbert’s Problems Without Solutions – Bears‘ and ‘Godless Killing Machines‘, as well as his eventual revelation of seeking common-ground, as well as the infamous on-screen smooch fest with a bear in ‘Survival Tips From “Good Morning America”‘, in which he attempts to put all of the long-term bear hatred and hostility to rest prior to the former shows ending in late 2014.
