Stephen Colbert Parodies 'Accidental Racist' With Alan Cumming (Video)
The Comedy Central host skewers the much-maligned Brad Paisley/LL Cool J collaboration.
When Brad Paisley and LL Cool J released their widely panned "Accidental Racist" song, many listeners reacted with horror, disgust and "Is this a joke?"
Stephen Colbert, meanwhile, took artistic inspiration from the earnest, cringe-inducing track wherein Paisley croons: "To the man that waited on me at the Starbucks down on Main, I hope you understand/When I put on that t-shirt, the only thing I meant to say is I'm a Skynyrd fan."
On Wednesday's edition of The Colbert Report, the host announced, "This level of unifying suckage has inspired me to write my own awful song." The result: "Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe," a tune about the gay marriage debate featuring Alan Cumming as the LL to Colbert's Paisley.
"I'm proud of my hetero cred but not everything Rush Limbaugh said," sang Colbert, sporting a cowboy hat and a poker face. (Given those ridiculous lyrics, we'd have a hard time not breaking character and dissolving into a Jimmy Fallon-esque giggle fit.)
Behold! "Oopsie-Daisy Homophobe," as performed by Colbert and Cumming:
