Spike Jonze Directs a New, Spike Jonze-y Opening for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”

As guest of Stephen Colbert on The Late Show, venerable director Spike Jonze wanted to do more than just a simple bit on the show.

He, instead, opted for the make-a-whole-new-opening-for-the-show route. 

The result, while only a one-time deal marked by Leap Day, really captures Colbert’s mixture of absurdity and heart that he goes for with abandon at the helm of The Late Show.
