Is the Denver International Airport (DEN) a part of some huge conspiracy or are they there just to let planes land or take off? Are there lots of hiddenÂ phallicÂ symbols purposefully placed around the airport to make people feel safe and secure? This is a great humorous video from Stephen Colbert that looks to see if Denver’s airport has some secret (and crazy) things going down.
So what do the folks at Denver Airport think about this? I had to ask.
“Yes, we did know it was the Colbert Report weÂ were taping with and we knew loosely what the subject matter was goingÂ to be,”Jenny Schiavone, DEN spokesperson, explained toÂ AirlineReporter.com.Â “We didnâ€™t see the actual clip until it ran publicly.”
And really that works best for the video.Â Jeff Green, head of PR and marketing for DEN, reacts perfectly to the very odd questions.
“Weâ€™re not sure which is more thrilling: being featured on the Colbert Report, or playing such a prominent role in some of the worldâ€™s most compelling conspiracy theories,” Â Schiavone explained. “While we were grateful for the opportunity to set the record straight on William Tapleyâ€™s fascinating thoughts about our airport, we regret that DIA has become the source of another rift between Stephen Colbert and Anderson Cooper.”
That’s right. It seems that Anderson Cooper got a little upset that this was “old news” that Colbert was covering.
“We hate to see the nationâ€™s most beloved newsmen feuding openly,” Schiavone Â stated via email. “In an effort to make up for the strain that weâ€™ve caused, weâ€™d like to invite Colbert and Cooper to Denver to settle their squabble in an epic battle of DIA conspiracy theory wits.”
I only think that William “Third Eagle of theÂ Apocalypse” should be invited as well. Now, that would make anÂ interestingÂ discussion.
