Stephen Colbert Learns Perfect Japanese

Its truthy!

 
 
Factoid: Noted political satirist, Stephen Colbert, apparently speaks perfect Japanese. Well, he's "learning." Anyways, watch the clip and try to forget about how its only Monday.

Oh how I love having to sift through the garbage on The Comedy Network to find these clips because Comedy Central hates Canada... =/
 
*edit- For my fellow Canucks the video is here (at about the 1:10 mark) -

@Whiskeyjack: Commedy Central is pretty much 80% bad movies, 20% original programming, and about 4% of that is good (i.e. Daily Show, Colbert Report, etc.), but why are Canadians' mouths just a horizontal median along which their heads are divided?

I don't really find him funny, nor do I hate him, but I must say his Chinese impersonation is pretty good; not even offended by that.

haha.  That robot is horrible but it's impressive if they made a fake vocal box that generates sound without relying on sound samples or prerecorded phrases.
