Re: Steve Colbert gives the best Paul McCartney interview, ever

They were huge fans of Peter Sellers and helped out the folks who formed Monty Python (I know George produced a number of their movies). It wasn't Colbert's best stuff, although when I went back and watched again prior to responding to this thread, you can see they're both amused.
Yah. only saw it once and I was in tears. I think Paul was in on the joke from the beginning.
