Stephen Colbert Explains How You May Get Shamed Into Voting Today

By 11.06.12

Guess what I did this morning? I voted! Did you? No?!?!?! What’s wrong with you? Don’t you know that American soldiers have DIED to protect our right to vote and you’re just crapping on it over there because you haven’t had time to do it yet because you had to eat a bowl of Fruit Loops before going to the office for work? WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU?!?!

See what I did there? I just shamed you into feeling bad about not having voted yet, and apparently this is a bit of mindf*ckery both parties employ to get their voters out to vote. Colbert dedicated a segment to it on his show last night and it was mildly fascinating. Both parts of it are embedded below. Enjoy.

Here’s part one…

And here’s part two…
