Watch: New Spike Jonze Short Film Starring Stephen Colbert

Come on over, grover

Spike Jonze can take any idea and make it into a work of art.

In his most recent project, the director made a funny short film for the intro of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The video features a confused Colbert waking up on the streets of New York where he runs into the familiar muppet, Grover, who leads him to his destiny – hosting The Late Show.

After the release of the movie Her, Jonze hasn’t slowed down. He shot Kanye West’s video for “Only One” via iPhone and is currently working on the new TV network, Viceland.

The official Youtube channel for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert says, “Director Spike Jonze had a vision for how to open The Late Show, so Stephen said, why not?”
