On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the host was inspired by his interview with Nick Kroll the other night, taking Kroll’s idea of asking celebrities to tweet awkward pictures of themselves in puberty with the hashtag #PuertoRicoRelief to raise money for hurricane relief. But Colbert needed a dollar amount. So when he asked Kroll what amount he thought each photo was worth, Kroll picked an amount he wasn’t expecting — $1,000. “Jesus!” said Colbert.
Colbert is using his Americone Dream Fund to throw down the pricey $1,000 per awkward photo, and celebrities jumped right in, including Sarah Silverman, Adam Richman, Kumail Nanjiani, and Aidy Bryant.
“Aidy Bryant sent this one,” said Colbert, showing off Bryant’s chubby-face school pic. “I believe this was the yearbook where she was voted ‘Most likely to become a thoughtful squirrel.’”
Celebrities continue to tweet their puberty pics with hashtags #PuberMe and #PuertoRicoRelief, and all the photos are certainly going towards a very worthy cause — but the more awkward, the better.
