Stephen Colbert Is The Man
The funnyman helps raise money for the Gulf oil spill cleanup with the help of Microsoft.
Stephen Colbert mentioned the search engine Bing 40 times on Monday’s episode of The Colbert Report.
Because Colbert is awesome – he partnered with Microsoft who agreed to donate $2,500 to The Colbert Nation Gulf of America Fund every single time he said the word “Bing” on his show. The fund was set up to help raise money for the rescue and cleanup efforts in the Gulf after the BP oil spill. “When I see these images of the coastal environment and wildlife being devastated,” Colbert said, “I just wish there was some way I could donate – someone else’s money.”
Colbert joked on his show, “I am going to get so much money out of these guys, I’ll be rob-BING them blind.” Thanks to his creative usage of the word, Colbert managed to raise $150,000 in one episode.
