Today, on Nov. 21, 2015, I was watching a Late Night With Stephen Colbert video from Nov. 18 on YouTube about Star Wars marketing cross-promotions. Toward the end, Stephen Colbert introduced Luke, an egg with a smiley face drawn on by a black marker, who was floating in space. And suddenly I knew exactly where this bit was going. How did I know? Was I using The Force? No… I knew because in 1995, I was hosting a Rogers Community Cable Show called “I’m Game”, and on that show I did a sketch with Luke, an egg with a smiley face drawn on by a black marker, who was floating in space. Is it possible this is just a coincidence? Or did Stephen or one of his writers come across my sketch, which has been on my YouTube channel since 2007? Or did one of them see my sketch when it originally aired? Watch the two sketches below, and let me know if you think I should egg them on to pay me royalties for turning to the dark side and stealing my yolk!
