Here’s Steve Martin Breaking Stephen Colbert’s Heart With a Banjo and a Song About Some Guy Named Gary

This Late Show song — with Stephen Colbert, Steve Martin, and a banjo — is a fun song about the perks of securing a true friendship. It’s also a sad song about the heartbreak of having a lopsided friendship, in which one person’s more invested than the other. And it’s also a confusing song that may or may not be all about Gary Mule Deer. Great, great, great.
