See ‘Late Show’ Creepily Combine Trump and ‘Hi Stranger’ Viral Video

“Some people have said it’s the most disturbing cartoon they’ve ever seen. We here at ‘The Late Show’ took that as a challenge,” Stephen Colbert says

Stephen Colbert attempted to make the viral video sensation “Hi Stranger” even creepier by giving it a Donald Trump makeover on The Late Show.

In the stop-motion animated video that’s become a sensation on social media, a naked and featureless figure mechanically utters sweet nothings to the viewer.

“There is sort of a debate on the internet about this thing. Some people find it kind of comforting, others want to know if you can take out a restraining order against a cartoon,” Colbert said. “Some people have said it’s the most disturbing cartoon they’ve ever seen. Well, we here at The Late Show took that as a challenge.”

Colbert then merged the “Hi, Stranger” video with the Late Show‘s reoccurring “Cartoon Trump,” with the character donning a “Make America Beautiful Again” thong and a “Putin” lower-back tattoo.

“I just want to sit here and relax with you, maybe take a shower, you know what I mean,” cartoon Trump tells the viewer, who it turns out is a creeped-out cartoon version of Melania Trump.
