Deep into awards season, it’s time to remember what awards are really about: money.
Here’s a great clip from last night’s Colbert Report, which begins with Stephen Colbert sending up the Grammy nominations.
The best part comes four-and-a-half minutes in, when members of Vampire Weekend and The Black Keys compete to see who has sold out more by licensing their songs for TV commercials. It’s a self-mocking “Sell-Out Off,” and as Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend put it: “I see your Zales and raise you Honda.”
