WATCH: Stephen Colbert Goes to Town on the Ridiculously Overhyped Apple Watch Launch

It did not escape Stephen Colbert's notice that mega-coporation Apple made some major announcements yesterday, about the iPhone 6 and the upcoming Apple Watch. And boy, was Colbert excited. Really whooping it up at the somewhat puzzling announcement by Apple CEO, Tim Cook, that the new watch will fundamentally change the way you look at your wrist. Kind of weird, right? More specifically, Cook said, "It's going to change the way you connect and communicate with your wrist." Colbert was scratching his headat that one. He thought he already knew all the ways to communicate with your wrist. Then he cracked a crude joke that you need to watch the segment to see. Because he's much funnier than we are.
