Yesterday, I thought that maybe the folks promoting Tabula Rasa through Opperation Immortality were looking for the Colbert Bump when they announced that the TV comedian's DNA would go into space as a part of the marketing gimmick / science-like project. Last night, I was proven right.
As I watched the Colbert Report on Comedy Central (Comedy Network here in Canada), I was surprised to hear an interview with Tabula Rasa creator Richard Garriott. Colbert bump? Maybe, but look how it worked out for former presidential hopeful Mike Heckabee...
Minutes before Richard Garriott went into quarantine for his space flight to the International Space Station, he talked to Stephen Colbert last night about Colbert's immortality. Colbert's DNA has been digitized and will travel with Garriott into space as a part of Operation Immortality. Watch the Colbert video to see the full interview.
