Daft Punk had been scheduled to perform their massive worldwide hit "Get Lucky" live last night as part of Stephen Colbert's Stephest Colbchella '13 series of live performances on the Colbert Report. Unfortunately, due to an upcoming performance by the duo at the MTV Video Music Awards later this month, Daft Punk backed out of the Colbert Report appearance. Undeterred by the snub, Stephen Colbert put together his own "Get Lucky" video featuring an all star cast including Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Jimmy Fallon, Hugh Laurie, Bryan Cranston, and even Henry Kissinger. Stephen Colbert did get to feature a live performance of another huge hit of the summer. Robin Thicke stopped by to perform his hit "Blurred Lines.". Check out the "Get Lucky" video below.
