Stephen Colbert Signs Off With Everyone In The World Singing We’ll Meet Again

Stephen Colbert has concluded with an all-star ‘We’ll Meet Again’ featuring everyone from Michael Stipe and Willie Nelson to Bill Clinton and astronauts at the space station.

You may need to watch the video a few times to spot all of the celebs including Cyndi Lauper and Peter Frampton, Barry Manilow, Patrick Stewart, George Lucas, Jeff Tweedy and The Newsroom stars Jeff Daniels and Sam Waterson.

Stephen then grabs his Captain American shield before he is whisked away in a sleigh by Santa Claus with President Abraham Lincoln (who really is a unicorn) and game show host Alex Trebek.

Colbert ended his nine-year run as host of the Colbert Report with what appeared to also be the killing off of the Colbert character before he talks over the Late Show from David Letterman in 2015.

The Colbert Report started as an extension of John Stewart’s The Daily Show in 2005. The show was initially a parody of the right-winged Fox News presenters like Bill O’Rielly but in time the Colbert character developed into a life of its own.

Stephen Colbert will take over The Late Show from David Letterman in May 20, 2015.
