VIDEO: Colbert snitches about MTV's secret Daft Punk VMA performance, roller dances with Bryan Cranston

On Tuesday, Daft Punk was scheduled to play "Get Lucky" on The Colbert Report as a part of the host's StePhest Colbchella Song of the Summer of the Century extravaganza. But, the Daft Punk appearance was nixed because fellow VIacom product MTV reportedly signed an exclusive deal with the historically shy funk duo to have them play a surprise performance at the VMAs later this month.

But, the Daft Punk appearance was nixed because fellow VIacom product MTV reportedly signed an exclusive deal with the historically shy funk duo to have them play a surprise performance at the VMAs later this month. 

Colbert says that he found out that the he'd been "daft punk'd" just two hours before filming (Ashton Kutcher actually came out to reveal the plan). So, to get back at MTV, he snitched about the secret performance and then called in a few favors and had Hugh Laurie, Jeff Bridges, Jimmy Fallon, Matt Damon (in a dancing booth), and Bryan Cranston The One Who Knocks stop by to lend a hand and dance their asses off to one of the summer's biggest hits, "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk. The lip dub video is a wonderful little treat to get your Hump Day started.
