Stephen Colbert Has Been Quietly Releasing Increasingly Elaborate Pro-Vaccine Music Videos For Months


Twitter users were startled when they recently discovered that Late Show host and former comedian Stephen Colbert has been releasing a series of increasingly elaborate pro-vaccine propaganda songs for months, culminating in a dance number held earlier this year. In fact, Colbert recently released a 10 minute supercut featuring 17 different songs and parodies.

Unbeknownst to most Americans, the show now receives less than 3 million nightly viewers, Late Show host Stephen Colbert released increasingly elaborate and sophisticated pro-vaccine music videos featuring anthropomorphic vaccine syringes that almost always urge viewers to receive the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.

The videos start simple with a syringe themed pro-vaccine can-can shortly followed by a song about getting vaccinated so you can “hug your mom.” They grow increasingly elaborate, with a quartet of syringes urging vaccination in the 7th, a group of pro-vaccine syringe-pirates in the 10th, and a parody of Simon & Garfunkle’s “Scarborough Fair” by the 15th. Another parody of “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” is employed at some point.

It all seems to end with Stephen Colbert dancing with a group of men and women wearing plastic vaccine costumes back on the set of his show. Colbert is seen back in his suit after a series of pink shirts in his makeshift studio.

The performance led Jon Miller to joke about Fox New’s night show hosted by Greg Gutfeld, a cable television show that generally should receive less viewers than Colbert’s network broadcast, beating the Tonight Show host’s ratings.

To bolster Miller’s point, or perhaps to point to the current division in American politics, most of the videos currently being discovered were broadcast and recorded earlier this year. The above-mentioned supercut was released in July, yet still only has around 270,000 views on YouTube at press.

Colbert had apparently been producing the videos for weeks or months prior to the culmination featuring human vaccines, yet very few appear to have made it to YouTube.
