Stephen Colbert Pulls Classic Prank On Lorde

Stephen Colbert went retro for a prank on Lorde.

Colbert took Global’s “The Late Show” on the road to New Zealand. The late-night talk show host was accompanied by Kiwi Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

Following a sort of “Carpool Karaoke” segment, Colbert and Arden met up with New Zealand singer Lorde and Arden’s business partner. The quartet chowed down on some barbecue but Colbert had something nefarious in mind.

Colbert offered Lorde some peanut brittle, but it was all in elaborate ruse! Lorde grabbed the tube-shaped container of peanut brittle.

Lorde popped open the container only to be greeted with the classic snake in a can. Long cloth-covered wire springs jumped out of the can, eliciting a look of terror from Lorde.

“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
