      Yes, but is he courting Mr. Key, or something? Excuse my homophobia, but starting with the way Mr. Colbert describes Mr. Key as "lovely and talented," I just get this vibe through the interview that Mr. Colbert would like to offer his hand to escort Mr. Key the next time the couple takes to the dance floor together

    loved keegans 40yr old observation. im 31 though, and in canada i recall way back hearing the song the first time in beer commercials with the clapping in it. cant quite recall when it was played, but you might wanna drop that age down a touch. but your call, your joke. still loved it. gotta hand it to the beer commercial though for introducing younger people to the song though, for those who might miss being exposed to it

    He should bottle that energy and sell it.

    I usually ‘watch’ the Late Night Videos in the car, so I’m just in listening mode. Am I the only one who thinks Keegan sounds exactly like Neil deGrasse Tyson? The way Keegan talks and laughs is so similar...
    So if there’ll ever be a biopic about Tyson, Keegan is the one to get cast. He doesn’t even have to act... ;-)

    I know Mr Key is already famous.... but seriously, how is he not a super-star?! His personality is infectious and inspiring... and he's handsome, smart, and funny on top of that!
    BUT! I do the Blister in the Sun "clap," and I'm only 32... so he was wrong about one thing! ^_^
