Stephen Takes On Kendall Jenner’s ‘Attractive Lives Matter’ Pepsi Ad


>>Stephen: WELCOME TO “THE LATE
SHOW.” I’M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
YOU KNOW JON, YOU CAN BACK ME UP ON THIS. A LOT OF THINGS WE TALK ABOUT ON
THIS SHOW. A LOT OF THINGS I COME HERE AND
SPOKE ABOUT NIGHT AFTER NIGHT, OVER THE LAST 300 SHOWS OR
SOMETHING LIKE THAT, FROM THE START OF THE SHOW. THERE’S ONE THING I HAVEN’T DONE
ON THIS SHOW AND THAT’S TALK ABOUT BILL O’REILLY. HE COMES ON THE SHOW, WE HAVE A
GOOD TIME. WE HAVE NICE CONVERSATIONS, BUT
I TALKED ABOUT HIM FOR, LIKE, 10 YEARS, AND I THINK THAT’S
ENOUGH. BUT I DO TALK ABOUT DONALD
TRUMP, AND TODAY THE TWO WORLDS COLLIDED WHEN TRUMP STUCK HIS,
LET’S SAY FINGER, INTO O’REILLY’S STICKY SITUATION. SEE, ON SATURDAY “THE NEW YORK
TIMES” REPORTED THAT FOX NEWS HAS SPENT MORE THAN $13 MILLION
TO SETTLE SEXUAL HARASSMENT SUITS AGAINST BILL O’REILLY,
ALTHOUGH O’REILLY SAYS THE ACCUSATIONS AGAINST HIM ARE
WITHOUT MERIT. OKAY, “NEW YORK TIMES”? WHAT HAPPENED TO INNOCENT UNTIL
PROVEN TO HAVE $13 MILLION? ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) BUT, BUT, THAT’S $13 MILLION-. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
THAT’S $13 MILLION MORE INNOCENT THAN I AM, I’LL TELL YOU THAT. BUT $13 MILLION MIGHT JUST BE
THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG– THOUGH THE TIP IS THE MOST SENSITIVE
PART OF THE ICEBERG– ( LAUGHTER )
OKAY? ARE YOU OKAY? ARE YOU GOING TO BE OKAY OVER
THERE? JUST KEEP BREATHING, JON. HERE WE GO. BECAUSE MORE THAN 30 COMPANIES
HAVE WITHDRAWN THEIR ADVERTISEMENTS FROM “THE
O’REILLY FACTOR,” INCLUDING ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
BMW, MERCEDES BENZ, UNTUCKIT SHIRTS, AND A MARKETING SERVICE
CALLED CONSTANT CONTACT. WHO HAVE NOW HAD TO CHANGE THEIR
NAME TO “CONSTANT CONSENSUAL CONTACT.” HERE’S WHERE THE WORLDS COLLIDE. O’REILLY’S IN A REAL PICKLE, BUT
TODAY DONALD TRUMP’S GOT HIS BACK. THE PRESIDENT TOLD THE
“TIMES,” “HE IS A GOOD PERSON. I THINK HE SHOULDN’T HAVE
SETTLED. I DON’T THINK BILL DID ANYTHING
WRONG.”>>Audience: BOOO!>>Stephen: MR. PRESIDENT–
HOLD ON. MR. PRESIDENT, I WANT TO REMIND
YOU, YOU JUST DECLARED APRIL SEXUAL ASSAULT AWARENESS MONTH. AND THERE ARE TWO ACCUSATIONS OF
SEXUAL ASSAULT I’M AWARE OF: BILL O’REILLY, AND YOURS. SO MAYBE– I’M GOING OUT ON A
LIMB HERE– MAYBE YOU’RE NOT THE PERFECT PERSON TO WEIGH IN ON
THIS ONE. DO YOU KNOW WHO MIGHT BE BETTER? YOUR DAUGHTER IVANKA SEEMS TO
HAVE A VERY ENLIGHTENED APPROACH TO THESE ISSUES. I LIKE WHAT SHE HAS TO SAY. THIS MORNING, IVANKA TRUMP
APPEARED ON “CBS THIS MORNING,” AND GAYLE KING ASKED HER ABOUT
HER RESPONSIBILITY FOR HER FATHER’S POLICIES.>>YOU HEAR THE PHRASE
“COMPLICIT,” THAT JARED AND IVANKA ARE COMPLICIT IN WHAT IS
HAPPENING TO THE WHITE HOUSE. CAN YOU JUST WEIGH IN ON HOW YOU
FEEL ABOUT THAT?>>IF BEING COMPLICIT IS WANTING
TO BE A FORCE FOR GOOD AND TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT, THEN I’M
COMPLICIT.>>Stephen: NOPE, THAT’S NOT
WHAT “COMPLICIT” MEANS. ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) OKAY, LET ME SEE HERE. I HAVE A DICTIONARY RIGHT HERE. I HAVE A DICTIONARY. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
LET’S SEE WHAT WE HAVE HERE. COLLABORATIONIST, COWARDLY–
HERE WE GO– COMPLICIT: “INVOLVED WITH
“INVOLVED WITH OTHERS IN AN ILLEGAL ACTIVITY OR WRONGDOING.” OH, WAIT, IT DOES HAVE “BEING A
FORCE FOR GOOD AND MAKING A POSITIVE IMPACT,” UNDER
“COMPLICIT, COMMA, TOTAL OPPOSITE OF.” ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )( CHEERS )
OKAY, YOU CAN’T– YOU CAN’T–
YOU CAN’T JUST REVERSE THE
DEFINITION TO MAKE YOURSELF SOUND BETTER. THAT’S LIKE SAYING, “IF BEING A
NAZI MEANS FIGHTING FOR CIVIL RIGHTS, THEN, YEAH, I’M A HUGE
NAZI.” ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
AND THERE’S NO WAY! THERE’S NO WAY WHAT I SAID WILL
EVER BE TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT, RIGHT? OKAY, I’M SAFE. THEN IVANKA ELABORATED ON THE
KIND OF INFLUENCE SHE HAS ON THE PRESIDENT.>>CAN YOU GIVE US AN EXAMPLE OF
SOMETHING THAT YOU DISAGREE WITH HIM ON AND THAT YOU THINK THAT
BY SPEAKING UP TO HIM, IT MADE HIM CHANGE HIS POSITION OR
SOFTEN HIS POSITION? ARE YOU COMFORTABLE WITH THAT?>>I THINK THAT FOR ME THIS
ISN’T ABOUT PROMOTING MY VIEWPOINTS. I WASN’T ELECTED BY THE AMERICAN
PEOPLE TO BE PRESIDENT.>>Stephen: TO BE FAIR, YOUR
FATHER WASN’T ELECTED BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE EITHER– JUST
THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
HE’S PRESIDENT. I’M NOT SAYING HE’S NOT
PRESIDENT, BUT WE DIDN’T– YOU– DO THE MATH. YOU KNOW, WE HAVE A DIVIDED
NATION. THAT IS CLEAR. WE HAVE A DEEPLY DIVIDED NATION. BUT TODAY IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYONE
HAS COME TOGETHER TO JOIN THE PROTEST AGAINST THE NEW
PROTEST AD FROM PEPSI. HAVE YOU GUYS SEEN IT? HAVE YOU GUYS SEEN THE AD? LET ME WALK YOU THROUGH IT. IT STARTS WITH A THRONG OF
BEAUTIFUL, MULTIETHNIC PEOPLE PROTESTING IN THE STREETS OF,
I’M GOING TO GUESS NEWPORT, RHODE ISLAND. ( LAUGHTER )
SO FAR, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT HAS CAUSED ALL OF AMERICA’S HOT
EXTRAS TO TAKE TO THE STREETS, BUT I’M GUESSING IT’S A PROTEST
FOR “ATTRACTIVE LIVES MATTER.” ( LAUGHTER )
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS THING? AND THE SIGNS THEY’RE HOLDING
AREN’T MUCH HELP FIGURING THINGS OUT. THEY SAY THINGS LIKE”PEACE,” AND
THE PEACE SYMBOL, AND “JOIN THE CONVERSATION.” “JOIN THE CONVERSATION.” THAT’S THE MOST CORPORATE
MESSAGE OF ALL TIME. THEY MIGHT AS WELL BE HOLDING
SIGNS THAT SAY, “WE ARE ALL THE CORE DEMOGRAPHIC.” ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
VERY GOOD. THANK YOU. BUT AT FIRST– STOP IT! BUT AT FIRST, A FIRST THIS WAS A
MOVEMENT WITHOUT A LEADER UNTIL THE PROTEST ROUTE JUST HAPPENED
TO PASS BY KENDALL JENNER DOING A FASHION SHOOT FOR ALUMINUM
SIDING. THEN SHE MAKES EYE CONTACT
WITH A CUTE BOY WHO BROUGHT HIS CELLO TO A PROTEST. THIS PROMPTS HER TO RIP OFF HER
BLONDE WIG, GIVE IT TO HER ASSISTANT, AND JOIN THE
CONVERSATION. JIM, CAN WE GET A CLOSE OF THE
ASSISTANT SHE GIVES THE WIG TO? ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) OH, SHE IS NOT THRILLED ABOUT
BEING KENDALL’S WIG CADDY. SHE MIGHT WANT TO JOIN A
CONSERVATION WITH HER AGENT ABOUT FINDING A BETTER ACTING
JOB. ONCE KENDALL JENNER HAS MADE THE
ULTIMATE SACRIFICE OF WIPING OFF HER LIPSTICK, IT’S SUPER FUN,
UNTIL THE MARCH MEETS THE WORLD’S LEAST-INTIMIDATING
POLICE FORCE. THEY’RE ALSO EXTREMELY
ATTRACTIVE. WATCH OUT, KENDALL. THOSE UNARMED COPS MIGHT START
STRIPPING! ( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ♪ ♪ ♪
LUCKILY– YOU CAN’T AFFORD ME! ( LAUGHTER )
LUCKILY, MS. JENNER, A WEALTHY, YOUNG, WHITE WOMAN, KNOWS
EXACTLY HOW TO HANDLE POLICE AT A PROTEST. ♪ ♪ ♪
>>Stephen: YEAH! THEY DID IT! YES, WE CAN, OF PEPSI! THIS COMMERCIAL ENDS WITH A
MESSAGE EVEN MORE PROFOUND THAN “JOIN THE CONVERSATION”:
“LIVE FOR NOW.” ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) I THINK I’M READING THAT
CORRECTLY. IS THAT HOW YOU’RE– FOR NOW?>>Jon: FOR NOW.>>Stephen: YES, “LIVE– LIVE
FOR NOW,” ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE PEPSI’S MARKETING DEPARTMENT
BECAUSE I DON’T THINK YOU GUYS ARE GOING TO BE THERE FOR LONG. WE’VE GOT A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU
TONIGHT. SIGOURNEY WEAVER IS HERE. BUT WHEN WE RETURN, I WILL HELP
YOU DO YOUR TAXES. STICK AROUND.

  1. Well, yes, the Electoral College voted Trump in, but that's the same with EVERY presidential election that used the electoral college in history. It's not like the Electoral college saw more votes for Hillary in one state and still decided to say that Trump won that state (Unless that snuck by me as I watched the votes get tallied live that long election night). Trump didn't win the popular vote, but he did win the votes in all the places that mattered. To say "We (the american people) didn't vote him in" is false. There had to be votes from enough people for the Electoral college to settle a decision and Trump seems to have played the map game better than Hillary did. So, it's more accurate to say that "Enough people voted him in".

    Stephen was funny, though.

  2. Note to newcoming viewers, it takes 5 and a half minutes to get past the political jokes and get to the title topic.

  3. Live for now is also Colbert's motto,I guess. Coz, you never know Trump will be out of the White House!! Wonder what he'll satirize then?

  4. People today are shit. Seriously, i had to ask people what is wrong with the ad because i didn't understood. The ad is pretty stupid and lame but that's all. Fuck today's world. People get offended for no reason.

  5. So this controversy is all about how the ad features attractive people?
    Alright, enough is enough. What the fuck am I missing? Could someone please just explain this to me?

  6. Ivanka tried to manipulate the meaning of complicit to make herself look good and in the process, made herself look like an even bigger fucktard. Fascinating.

  7. Love how she’s crying about it sorry boo nobody feels bad for you
    your whole family complains while people in Puerto Rico are in absolute hell

  8. How are all these rich kids with Ivy league education so stupid? English is not my first language and I know what complicit means.

  9. Not all the people there are even that attractive. The bigger issue was that they were trying to milk off political dissonance with a half-ass political commercial for the purposes of commercial gain. Its an absolute insult to everyone that a stupid pepsi is gonna bring people together and help resolve this issue.

  10. Wow, great video!!  👍🏻  I’m not the biggest hip hop fan but this guy Hunnid on my page is pretty talented… you should check him out!

  11. Maybe the funniest and most depressing aspect of this Pepsi fail is how much it resembles the music video for The Chemical Brothers' "Out of control". Except that video was about pointing out how ludicrous it is to dare to mix marketing and the spirit of revolution. It is amazing to realize how public figures and big companies are a constant parody of themselves. And even more amazing to see that we are all still buying into it, aside from the occasional angry comment.

  12. Speaking from a perspective of a bald guy (it started when I was 18), looks matter. The service I get at restaurants is not as good, the mechanics don't do their best on my car, people don't listen when I talk, i get passed over for a job, too many to list. So inner beauty doesn't matter regardless of what society tells you.

  13. I DID IT! IT WAS ME STEVIE POO!!!!!! IM Q FOR REAL 100% AND I STARTED THE CHAIN REACTION BY TRICKING PEOPLE WITH MY STUPID-SMART BRAIN!

  14. Truth and altruism DO matter and both are woefully underrated by modern society as well as absolutely being ignored right NOW by this current administration. THE KIDS ARE WATCHING US YOU IDIOTS!

    Brought up in a violent unforgiving convicting environ of instant condemnation where whether the truth was told or not did not stop the beatings, I now as an adult still see things in absolute black and white and to a fault; but I also INSIST and claim that the truth DOES matter and matters on every level, ESPECIALLY in leadership. And boy I have paid dearly at times for insisting on always telling the truth…yet I have not ONE regret for the greater good and MY selfish piece of mind possessing a clear conscience and being able to truthfully say, "they got SHIT on me".

    Admittedly the Trump administration HAS benefited me in ONE good way; it has confirmed that that little boy YEARS ago who got his ass kicked and punched to the point of not caring or scaring of truth, WAS right all along, sticking to telling the truth, no matter the coming ass-kicking OR political repercussions……it damn sure DOES matter, and moreso now than ever before.

  15. LOL…Constant Contact isn't a marketing company per se. They offer a platform for email newsletters, marketing campaigns. They're a service provider more than anything.

  16. What's worse than Trump? White women in America like Ivanka and Kendell are worse. They feign social justice and equality for their own vanity and profit. White women will yell equality for all and then retreat to their suburban mansion with their granite counter tops when the shots are fired. Young white women especially will use their sexual prowess for nothing else but pride and personal gain. Trump is an idiot but, a puppet at best. Lift the veil and remove the make up to see true wickedness in satin lingerie.

  17. Its easy to tell what's real. You all are ducking my life up like cowards on purpose to make the world worse then it was before. I still beat you because your all guilty together against one honest man. I never pretended I would lose because I never attacked you all . you all attacked yourselves in front of me. I just wanted you to toughen up.

  18. As an extremely sheltered white person from an upperclass neighborhood who has never actually hung out with a black person this ad deeply deeply offended me and I am outraged. . . .I think. Better make sure that's what Colbert thinks too.

  19. plot twist: the cop shots her down as she approaches because 'he feared for his safety'. That would be more realistic and consistent with the current affair of things.
