U.S. Comedian Rains Mockery on Rain

2007/05/14 | 208 views | Permalink | Source

"Endless modesty?" U.S. comedian Stephen Colbert had a few satirical words for Rain, Korea's top pop-singer.

Colbert mocked Rain, who beat Colbert in an online poll of the world's 200 most influential people by Time magazine, in a recent broadcast of his "Colbert on Demand" comedy show.

Colbert poked fool of Rain's motto from his official website, "Endless effort, endless endurance, endless modesty". Colbert said he is "infinitely more" modest than Rain and said, "Rain, It's time to rein in you".

Colbert also starred in a parody music video of Rain's hit "How to Avoid The Sun" and suggested that he is more influential than Rain.

In the parody video, Colbert danced to a song very similar to Rain's hit while dressed in the same kind of clothes and sun glasses that Rain wore in his video.

Colbert's version of the song, which he sang in Korean, included lyrics such as, "You know you're my girl, so get in my Hyundai. You know you're my girl, we can eat some kimchi".

Back-up vocals repeated the fact that Colbert was actually singing in Korean. In one segment of the video, Colbert hurls a copy of Time magazine with Rain's photo through a window.

Colbert seems to have made the video in response to the online poll which was released on May 4. The comedian ranked second after Rain with 278,381 votes. Rain topped the list with 470,174 votes.
