Daft Punk Cancels 'Colbert Report' Appearance for MTV VMAs (Video)
The TV-shy French duo was set to appear on the Comedy Central program, but due to contractual obligations to the MTV Video Music Awards later this month, they canceled their scheduled performance. Both MTV and Comedy Central are owned by Viacom.
"We booked Click and Clack over here about a month ago," host Stephen Colbert said during Tuesday's broadcast.
"Apparently, Daft Punk are going to make a surprise appearance on the MTV Video Music Awards. Don’t tell anyone, because, fun fact: No one told me until two hours ago.”
Still, Colbert managed to lure bold-faced names like Hugh Laurie, Bryan Cranston, Matt Damon, Jeff Bridges, Jimmy Fallon and Jon Stewart to take part in a "Get Lucky" dance party.
