Butterball has run the Turkey Talk Line for 30 years according to their website, helping out the hopeless wannabe turkey cooks on Thanksgiving and other holidays with fine chat and directions over the phone. The methods have changed over the years, with Butterball “embracing digital” with Facebook, live chats, and more to keep with the times and help out people wherever they might be. At least they did before Stephen Colbert volunteered to help.
To close out his shortened week before Thanksgiving, Colbert shared two segments where he went to volunteer on the hotline to help people with their turkey woes. The only problem is instead of help, he accused them of crimes, asked them a slew of crazy questions, and blamed the entire thing on Jimmy Fallon.
