WATCH: Stephen Colbert Perfectly Sums Up the Inanity of the Internet
Recent, entirely suspect reports that Russia could potentially "destroy the Internet" have Late Show host Stephen Colbert in a panic. On Tuesday night, Colbert broke down what to do in case an emergency happens and the Soviets blow up the World Wide Web (excluding Russia one would assume? It's not clear).
"All Americans have to be prepared for a surprise web attack," Colbert insisted. "So, tonight I'm going to show you how to pack an Internet outage go bag." Colbert then loaded a bag full of analog representations of all the dumb stuff we do on the web and it's a bit depressing. The list includes:
- a baby picture (or a photo of Vin Diesel)
- print-outs of restaurant reviews, local movie times and racist tweets
- a cat to replace YouTube
