While driving to work through the Lincoln Tunnel this week, Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert was passed by a "dirt bike badass" changing lanes and popping wheelies. Because he knows that a journalist is always on duty, Colbert captured video of the thrilling moment with his iPhone and shared it with his viewers. If you set aside the reckless disregard for human life, this video is awesome in so many ways:
Our favorite part is when the biker realizes Colbert is taping and gives him a thumbs up—then asks him to text a copy of the video. Unfortunately, Colbert forgot the area code. "I didn't write it down," he explains, "because I was driving and videotaping, and writing would have made it dangerous. So I hope broadcasting will be acceptable instead! Oh, and by the way, my name is Stephen Colbert, and I have a television show."
Now that dude who bench presses while doing wheelies needs to start hanging out by the Lincoln Tunnel!
