What happens when Stephen Colbert meets up with Steve Martin in a fake forest? Late night television gold is what.
Martin wandered up on Colbert while he was sitting on a log in a fake forest and talked about the best and worst parts of friendship. Colbert noted that Hollywood is tough place to maintain true, lasting friendships, so why not sing a song about friendship?
The song also takes a turn for the sad when it turns into a song about lopsided friendships and what happens when one person is more invested in a relationship than the other.
Martin even had to tell Colbert, “I think of you as an acquaintance.”
