In 2015, Stephen Colbert will take his spot behind David Letterman’s desk hosting the Late Show on CBS. But as 2014 winds down, Colbert is wrapping up his own show.
Stipe played a cameo as “elf on the shelf” or, as Colbert introduced him, Stipe on a shelf. The appearance cut to Colbert’s yard sale, his last attempt to get rid of the years of “crap” he’s collected on the Colbert Report.
Colbert invited the public to rummage through his junk in the Colbert studios, including the Stipe on a shelf, which was marked down to a quarter due to lack of interest.
