In this episode of the Colbert Report, Stephen discusses an electronic vocal organ that is posing as a teacher, converses with PK Winsom about tea party racism, expresses his distaste for the 4/20 pot-head celebration, and interviews the CEO of Dreamworks Animation, Jeffrey Katzenberg.
The episode opens with Stephen Colbert discussing a controversial clip of him using a Chinese accent that was somehow perceived as racist. After re-showing it – for those that missed it – he moves to his own defense, by rolling a story about a innovative and highly-complex electronic vocal organ that was recently invented by Japanese scientists. Stephen claims that he learned with the robot teacher, since the new creation was designed to help the hearing impaired with their vocal training.
Later on in show, Tea party racism is allegedly accredited to the fact that the rallies are – in general – mostly white with an insignificant number African American participants. To remedy this issue, PK Winsom shows up, offering his services to any protest that needs a few black people to reduce the any racial tensions. Then, as a tangent on the subject of race, Stephen stakes a claim against the pot-headed holiday, four twenty.
To close the episode, Jeffrey Cassenberg, the CEO of Dreamworks animation, announces that every future Dreamworks movie will be shown in 3-d, citing that life is in 3 dimensions, so why not our movies?
