Video: Watch Bon Iver’s outstanding Colbert Report appearance

Bon IverHaving captivated the world only weeks ago with his performance on Jimmy Fallon, Bon Iver (aka. Justin Vernon) has now taken on The Colbert Report. Watch him play both “Calgary” and his 2008 classic, “Skinny Love”, plus his hilarious interview with Stephen Colbert himself.

Bon Iver’s appearance marks the beginning of an entire week of concerts on The Colbert Report, a week the satirical show is calling “Dr Pepper Presents StePhest Colbchella ’011: Rock You Like a Thirst-icane”.

Note that when Colbert tells Vernon he’s a “big fan” he couldn’t be more sincere. There are jokes about the band name (“Is Bon short for Bonathan?”), Vernon’s choice of Religious and Women’s Studies at college and the inevitable discussion of that cabin in the woods. Watch the clips below:
