Daft Punk nixed its slated Tuesday night appearance on Comedy Central's "Colbert Report," which nautrally left the show host to whip out his own dancing shoes for the program's summer concer series, Colbchella.
The TV-shy duo canceled the highly-touted visitation due to an "exclusivity conflict" with Comedy Central's sister network, MTV. EW reports the network had been secured exclusive rights to the elusive Daft Punk duo leading up to the VMAs.
"You see, we booked Click and Clack over here a month ago," said Colbert on Tuesday. "Apparently, Daft Punk are going to make a surprise appearance on the MTV Video Music Awards," he continued. "Fun fact! No one told me until two 'o clock yesterday," he added.
Naturally, in response to the hullabaloo, Colbert created the ultimate music video - a star-studded dance to the duo's summer hit, "Get Lucky," including the likes of Hugh Laurie, Jimmy Fallon Jeff Bridges, Bryan Cranston, Matt Damon, Jon Stewart, the Rockettes, and oddly enough, Henry Kissinger.
