Watch Stephen Colbert's Hilarious Stint In Army Basic Training


Remember that time Stephen Colbert tried going through Army basic training?

The comedian and star of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" ends his nine-year run on Thursday, so we figured it was a good time to look back at one of his more memorable segments: "Stephen Strong - Army of Me."

"No special treatment, just like any other recruit," Colbert says in the hilarious clip, hopping out of a limo and sporting a red tracksuit. He is, of course, greeted by a drill sergeant who starts screaming at him and takes him through various physical exercises.

There were plenty of wonderful questions from the private-for-a-day:

— "I'm here for the Army. Is this the Army?"

— "I have a question about tanks. Do they have bathrooms in there, or do you just pee out the barrel?"

— "Permission to go AWOL?"
