Baroque pop star Andrew Bird
, whose newest and very well-received album Break It Yourself
has pushed him to the forefront of blogosphere buzz, paid a visit to the Colbert Report, and it went down about as hilariously as you'd expect. Performing "Eyeoneye" from Break It Yourself
as well as sitting down for an interview with Colbert where Colbert couldn't quite keep a straight face during his own ridiculous questions and Andrew Bird didn't seem quite ready for the irreverence being thrown his way, Andrew Bird earned his "Colbert Bump." It may not have achieved the bizarro factor of Bjork's visit
but my boss still had to tell me to calm down because I was breaking into random giggle fits during the whole interview. We want to be invited to Halloween parties where it's acceptable to dress as gay Abraham Lincoln while playing Andrew Bird records.
