Stephen Colbert and Aubrey Plaza Tell Hilarious Lies to Get Puppies Adopted

Recently on The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert and actress Aubrey Plaza teamed up for a segment called “Rescue Dog Rescue” to help get some super cute pups adopted from the North Shore Animal League America. To counter the usually sad adoption ads, specifically the classic one starring singer Sarah McLachlan, Colbert is using hilarious made-up facts about each puppy to get them forever homes. “Because if you’re not willing to lie for an adorable puppy, then you belong in a shelter.” said Colbert.
