Colbert Debuts New Palin-Inspired Opening Credits (VIDEO)

November 17, 2010 5:59 a.m.

Stephen Colbert is a big fan of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s new reality TV show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska.

After rolling the show’s opening credits last night, Colbert said, “Let me just say that after that, my Bering Strait just got a litte Bering straighter. And yes, you can see Russia from it.”The show’s rugged intro — which shows the Palins hunting, fishing and logging — also had Colbert feeling a little self-conscious about his own show’s opening credits.

So Colbert decided to wear a 5 o’clock shadow and premiere the new credits for Stephen Colbert’s Report, showing him punching a fish, blowing up a mountainside and machine-gunning down a tree.
