The Colbert taping

Ok, so, for those of you who don't know, last night Soapier was able to give away soaps to the Colbert Report audience. This bar:

Not the pie. That soap, called Soapert, is now available for sale, and $2 from every bar sold goes to Donors Choose!

Myself, S.I. and Erik (both NYers from Reddit) went to the screening. Got ushered in by two great people there, Amy and Stewart, got seated, and found all of the Soapier soaps under all of the chairs in the studio. It was awesome. You could smell the apple pie fragrance.

The warm-up guy, Julian (I believe his name was), was hysterical, and mentioned the soap to the audience, who cheered. Really cool.

There was a great moment when Stephen did a quick Q & A, and someone asked for a picture. He said no. When he finally got his make-up ready, he ran into the audience to get the picture, only to have the camera out of batteries.

He then started the show, after the fanfare, with "That was so nice... if only I could have taken a picture to commemorate it." Oh man, it was brutal, but so funny!

The show went very well, the people were great, and we all had a great time.

Thanks to the people of the Colbert Report for hosting us. We really appreciate it!

Now we move on to product placement. We're currently negotiating to have our soaps placed in a feature film. We'll see how it goes!

It's Thursday. I hope everyone's having a good week. It's almost over!
