THE DAY. WHEN THIS IDEA WAS BROUGHT TO
YOU, DID YOU JUMP STRAIGHT AT IT OR YOU’RE, LIKE, I’M NOT GOING
TO DO THAT.>>YOU KNOW WHAT, MAN, WE LOOKED
AT THE STORY BOARD, WE THOUGHT IT WAS FUN, A PARTNER AND I, AND
WE TURNED TO THE LADY, THE SECRETARY IN THE ROOM, AND SAID
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS? WE WERE EXCITED ABOUT DOING IT
BECAUSE IT WAS A GOOD PRODUCT, CERTAINLY. SHE SAID, IT’S FUNNY, BUT MY DAD
WOULDN’T LIKE IT. WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOUR DAD
WOULDN’T LIKE IT? HE SAID FOOTBALL PLAYERS AREN’T
SUPPOSED TO WEAR PANTY HOSE. AND I SAID, WELL, IT WAS A GOOD
DAY, IT WAS A GOOD COMPANY AND A GOOD PAYDAY, SO WE WENT FOR IT.>>Stephen: SURE. AND ONE GOOD THING, I WENT
BACK TO ALABAMA AFTER IT WAS MADE AND THE GENTLEMAN CAME IN

  1. 3:16 Joe Namath looks super cool. Colbert looks like he's camping in winter and ran to the motorhome to grab his robe. 😊

  2. Wow, one of the best interviews by Mr Colbert in recent memory. Props!

  3. Go ahead Joe!!! Look at you!

  4. Joe Namath is a drunk douche and should not be a celebrity at all. He was a horrible play and literally the worst QB EVER to get into the HoF. He had a 50% chance of being right when he "predicted" they would win. The guy is trash.

  5. Hahahahahahahahaahahahahahahaa

  6. The studio is icy. We were there in May (got to see Keanu Reeves interviewed by Stephen!) I was pretty much shivering most of the time. Still had fun.

  7. Broadway Joe on Broadway… Anyone else thought of that?

  8. Tom Brady will never be this cool

  9. Joe looks so cool in that fur. Oh how I miss the 1970’s. I was just a kid back then. Iconic man he is! 💕

  10. LOVE THAT COAT & HE LOOKS AWESOME IN IT!! Loved him on the love boat!!😊

  11. As a Brit I have no idea who this guy is but I like his style!

  12. America's George Best.

  13. Stephen should do more interviews wearing shades… 😏

  14. The American Dream Dusty Rhodes and The Nature Boy pulled off Fur/Mink coats in July back in the day! lol

  15. Joe Namoth looks great!

  16. Who came here to figure out that the song was Green Hill Zone?

  17. Great vibe. This host has great energy and he is smart

  18. Joe Willie, RTR #12

  19. Okay am I going crazy or was that Green Hill Zone they were playing in the intro? First Saria's Song and now this lol. Loving all the Video Game music

  20. Great to see Joe again.

  21. Oh, i'm not first, but i like this channel!

  22. wait 'til this mf gets to act 2

  23. Love You Joe…..you are still beautiful…going to get the book….LOVE ALWAYS….barb from Montreal

  24. Green Hill Zone!

  25. Ohh ohh those look so soft!

  26. And he played with a leather helmet

  27. Taking it – "Fur-ther"? Fur-ocious…

  28. FUR IS MURDER❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️

  29. Lost Woods, Mega Man X, and now Green Hill Zone? Damn, they're killing it as of late.

  30. Joe has a future as a stand-up comic!

  31. He was a less than stellar guest. Stephen asked him to recount a story and he said "no,buy the book". No, I want to hear you tell stories otherwise why would I care about Joe Namath, now all a sudden. Stephen was surprised and I think a little miffed. Joe just seemed obnoxious to me.

  32. Great to see Joe again!

  33. awwww, it's been so long since I've seen Joe Namath! He looks great and seems like a wonderful person.

  34. Hey that's my neighbor! Joe❤️

  35. I LOVE me some Joe Willy Namath!!! Glad he seems to have finally found peace and is clean & sober. He's always been so adorable and one of the top 5 greatest quarterbacks of all time!!

  36. Man. If I were Colbert, I would have an amazing autograph collection…I mean Joe Namath autographed official NFL football….

  37. Wow THAT OLD CUNT AIN'T DEAD YET??2🤔

  38. A f-ing fur coat. Seems all of the football hits affected his brain. Takes many dozens of murdered animals to make a coat. One murdered animal is too many. Screw that asshole. Yes I'm vegan…. have been for 25+ years.

  39. Colbert….do you have any ethics regarding cruelty to animals or is it all about show business for you…. anything is ok. I suspect you don't give a shit about the cruelty of the fur industry or factory farms, etc.

  40. Don’t let this distract you from the fact that Jon and the band played green hill zone when joe came out

  41. wait, was that sonic the hedgehog music?

  42. I used to see him throwing a ball next to my high school in Lauderdale.

  43. Had a crush on him when I was a little girl. He has beautiful Eyes 💙🔥💥

  44. Still ha cha cha!!!

  45. Colbert looks hottt🙀

  46. Why did I literally exclaim, "Oooh Joe Namath!" as I scrolled past this video, like it was 40 years ago lol?

  47. did they play sonic theme…. lol o.O

  48. Can not believe that this man is still alive, and looking pretty darn good no less.

    "This feels right".
    Epic.

  49. Есть русские? 😂

  50. Hi Stephen can you please have as a guest Manny Pacquio?

  51. How the heck does one get a date with Raquel Welch?

  52. "NO one " can pull off a fur coat in July. this is simply Moronic behavior by celebrities and Rich people….completely stupid.

  53. FAUX FUR 💕. THANK GOD @thehumanesociety

  54. The legend, Joe Namath, loved watching him play the game.

  55. I'd marry this man now!

  56. Hey! I used to make house-slipper/knee-high boots out of the same faux fur Joe is wearing! Cool!

    And Yeah! Joe had the best legs in show biz in those days! Lol!

  57. this guy looks like the library cop from seinfeld.

  58. Smokin hot Joe. When i first saw Joe i was everybit of 14 or 15 and fell in love . He was and still is the finest white man except Burt reynolds alive. May Burt rest in peace

  59. Fury Fedora is whats missing

  60. On that book cover he reminds me of Clive Owen – we got the man for the biopic.

  61. Broadway Joe…… The only time I am conceptually conflicted in response to the Question…. "Is it physically possible for you to love another man.. …???""

  62. My favorite Joe Nameth moment was when he was drunk on Monday Night Football, that was fucking hilarious

  63. Its fur!!that's bad except a beloved celebrity wears it…then we all cheer….hypocrisy

  64. Broadway Joe back in fur! I’m to the moon and back! Love you Joe!

  65. He looks younger today than the picture with Ed Sullivan

  66. wow, funny guy, rock and roll !! what sport did he participate in again ?

  67. Better shape than John Oliver though!

  68. is it just me or does stephen look like he was in the airforce when he was younger then never got rid of the swoopty hairstyle?

  69. Stephen Colbert the political hag

  70. Fur and 🕶️ sunglasses 😂😂😂😍🤩 Love It

  71. glad a lot of animals had to die for those coats :/

  72. Thank you for your help, so I subscribed to your channel, I continued my theme; traveled with the painter, we worked hard together.谢谢你对我的帮助,所以,我订阅了你的频道,我继续我的主题;跟着画家去旅行,我们一起努力。

  73. A harp seal and a cross between a silver fish or a genetically modified grey wolf cross perhaps ?

  74. no need to support animals being skinned alive.

  85. Why not tell us why, Joe, you are appearing in misleading Medicare TV ads. Anything? Joe? Steven?

  86. I really love how Jonathan Batiste gives us these video game Easter eggs. So good.

  87. Can I get a gif of “this feels right”?
    Because I will use it daily.

  88. Broadway Joe, how can you not love him? I loved him even more the night one drunken Joe was hitting on a female reporter. " you're so cute. I wanna kiss you." lol Awesome!!

  89. He's here to talk to us about Vapor Lock

  90. The original Slick Willie

  91. What a Douchebag this is is!
