Watch As The Late Show Features Video of Monster Trucks in Bangor
Washington D.C. is processing a potential Supreme Justice for the United States, Brett Kavanaugh. There's been a lot of drama around the first day of confirmation hearings that have included protesters and shouting matches.
But nothing dramatizes this better than a monster truck styling of the hearings of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, which includes a little footage from Bangor's own Cross Insurance Center's monster truck show.
The video includes a shot of Megasaurus breathing fire in the truck pit at the Cross Insurance Center.
The video over-dramatizes the rather bland hearings by creating an ad that takes on the feel of a monster truck advertisement.
"Live on Capital Hill Brett Kavanaugh's pulse smashing, spine tingling, skull singeing confirmation hearing free-for-all!"
The monster truck appears at the :47 mark as the video addresses highlights of Kavanaugh's hearing:
"And, as always, Senator Megasaurus."
Fire breaths out of the mouth of the Megasaurus with a roar while the video lists "Sen. Richard Megasauraus" as a Republican from Missouri. Check out the video for yourself- you can see the inside of the Cross Insurance Center with UMaine banners and various businesses' banners hanging from the walls.
Here's where I think The Late Night show got their footage, a video on YouTube published April 2017 with an impressive 7.5 million views:
