Last night on The Colbert Report, Daft Punk had been scheduled to appear and play their hit "Get Lucky" to the delight of the few viewers who haven't already had the song integrated into their DNA. The appearance was meant to kick off "StePhest Colbchella," the show's summer music series. Unfortunately, MTV had other plans.
Daft Punk were also scheduled to make a "surprise appearance" on September's VMAs broadcast, and MTV head Van Toffler (real name) made the mistake of demanding exclusivity and prohibiting the French duo from doing The Colbert Report. This made Stephen unhappy, so he used the airtime he might have given the band to basically destroy any dignity MTV head Van Toffler still possessed, mostly just by reading his own words on the air.
Also, Stephen let the cat out of the bag! An almost entirely electronic song will be played by two anonymous, stoic men in motorcycle helmets at the VMAs! Get excited!
