Watch The Black Keys, Vampire Weekend Whore Out for The Colbert Report
Last night, Stephen Colbert decided to have some fun with his Grammy ballot for this year. The late-night talk show host invited Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney of The Black Keys to battle Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig for Colbert’s Best Alternative Music Album vote. Colbert decided to have a “sell-out-off” where each side went through their various song placements in major television ads—including Zales, Honda, Tommy Hilfiger, Hewlett Packard and Sony Ericsson.
As you can see in the video below, Colbert ultimately declared that both bands “equally whored themselves out.”
