I was going to post this in my Sunday Summary blog post, because that’s where it belongs. BUT there is nothing that is so exactly designed to suit my tastes as this video of Stephen Colbert gently coercing Tom Hiddleston to sing as a guest on his talk show, and I couldn’t wait to share it.
My dear friend Elizabeth, who knows me so well, messaged me about this video’s existence only hours after it was uploaded to YouTube. She couldn’t watch it immediately because she was at “work,” but I convinced her to stop being productive and fangirl with me.
This video is a gift to humanity, and although life can be bleak and confusing and traumatizing, there is also THIS: Tom Hiddleston and Stephen Colbert singing old country gospel songs while grinning into each other’s faces.
Colbert? Hiddleston? Are you listening?? PLEASE CATER TO MY WHIMS AND MAKE THIS HAPPEN.
