    Last night, Oct 29 2013, Stephen Colbert did a skit on product placement. He teased companies to send him free stuff for plugging their product.

    He had mentioned the vegetables, endives, on a previous show, and a California endive grower sent him a free box of endives.
    He then said asked for a Tesla Model S, "metallic blue with piano black interior and 21" wheels and tires upgrade."

    Ignore the custom color, and custom wheels, of the car used for the display, though. :)

    Hey, sweet! That's forum member Viperbrad's custom wrapped Model S! Check the thread here, and the photo shoot here.

    Also this is a pretty big deal since Colbert usually talks up his Audi A8L. He's even done sponsorship events for Audi. Someone get that man to a Tesla test drive!

    What do you want to bet that Viperbrad is connected to Steven Colbert in some way?

    Seems pretty likely...

    Besides having a ridiculously awesome first name, Mr. Colbert has great taste! His Emmy awards would fit perfectly in the frunk :biggrin:

    My guess is he already did a test drive, and that's why he wants one ;)

    I think Musk would make a good interview on his show.

    I think I heard him actually say matte blue and not metallic blue.

    He did Colbert Report too like in June or July I think.

    Haha! That's hilarious, what are the odds they would randomly choose one of the rare custom colors.

    Viperbrad: Sorry off-topic, but those rims are sweet. Are they 21's? What brand are they?

    Now that he's getting Letterman's old gig, he probably figures he can afford one....

    He made more than a million last year (he said so in an interview before Christmas). So money wasn't the issue that held him back :)
