VIDEO: Meet Stephen Colbert's fabulous envoy to the Russian Olympics

Buddy Cole lays out the dos and don'ts of being gay in Sochi

VIDEO: Meet Stephen Colbert’s fabulous envoy to the Russian Olympics

Seems a little ironic that the Russians would take a concept invented by the Greeks and stand it on its head by adopting this anti-gay stance at the Olympics. But on Monday night’s Colbert Report, the lonely voice of freedom brought in an authority on the subject: Buddy Cole, boulevadier and man-about-town.

Cole is the delightful invention of Scott Thompson from Kids in the Hall. Here he clarifies the questions we’ve all been burning to know, such as, “Are buttons gayer then zippers?”. And he also introduces a number of helpful idiomatic phrases to allow you to pass for hetero in Sochi.

Buddy would make a great skating analyst, ne c’est pas?
