Jonze, the director of films like “Her,” “Where the Wild Things Are” and “Being John Malkovich,” was on the show to talk about being the creative director of newly launched TV channel Viceland. But first, the Oscar winner asked Colbert if he could portray him in a different light.
The video starts off with Colbert waking up in the middle of a park on a cold February day. He wanders the gray streets of New York, lost in his own thoughts.
His attempts to make friends with people on the streets are met with scorn or by people completely ignoring him. Then he runs into Grover from “Sesame Street.”
Watch the video to see how the new friendship plays out.
