Watch Stephen Colbert Break Character Discussing Hanukkah

Stephen Colbert rarely steps out of his "Stephen Colbert" character, save for the occasional touching moment or interview he's just too genuinely interested in, but some things set him off. And one of those things, as we saw last night, is trying to draw a menorah by holding a sharpie in his mouth and tracing his hands. After that, everything goes hell — curse words are said, a Hitler moustache is accidentally drawn — and all because Thanksgiving and Hanukkah overlap this year. But seriously, Colbert, try not to worry about this and instead imagine a delicious latke with apple sauce, cranberry sauce, some cold turkey, and a side of gravy. (Shenanigans start at the 1:57 mark.)
