Stephen Colbert announced on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” that he’ll sing teen pseudo-songstress Rebecca Black‘s YouTube hit “Friday” with the Roots. That is, if he and Jimmy Fallon can raise $26,000 for charity by Friday, April 1.
Recently, late-night show hosts Colbert and Fallon have combined their powers for DonorsChoose.org, a charity that enables the public to make donations that directly fund school projects and provide schools with the materials they need.
The two funny men declared themselves “best friends forever” (for six months) in order to raise money for the charity. Colbert even donated the proceeds of his auctioned-off mock portrait to DonorsChoose.org. He later told his audience that Fallon would match the amount with his own donation (much to Fallon’s surprise).
Fallon’s response? If he can get fans to raise $26,000 by April Fool’s, Colbert and the Roots will perform “Friday” on his show.
If they make this happen—and, knowing what we know about the Colbert Bump, we’re pretty sure it will—there’s really only one thing left to say:
We so excited.
