Stephen Colbert Parodies 'Accidental Racist' With Alan Cumming (Video)

Stephen Colbert

After serving as one of "Daily Show's" most popular correspondents, he spun off into "The Colbert Report" (which has won two writing Emmys).

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.)
