Stephen Colbert and Patrick Wilson's National Anthem Makes Me Proud to Be American

The National Anthem, where we express dissent and send our greatest celebrities to represent the people, hasn’t exactly brought out the best of us these past months. (Save for Pink. Pink had the flu.) For those of us who haven’t been super psyched to be Amurkin lately, let Stephen Colbert and Patrick Wilson, a Broadway and film actor, lift your weary spirits. Stephen Colbert “bum bum bum’ed” to the best of an average man’s abilities. Patrick Wilson hit the high notes like a two-time Tony-nominated actor. All in all, I’m in the mood for a hot dog. VEGAN, but still.

Thank you, gentlemen.

KC Complains A Lot

You never know how much you appreciate a nice, competently done, earnest and not over the top National Anthem until you see something like this.

Good job, guys, this made me enjoy the anthem a lot more than I have in recent months.
