Stephen Colbert and Simon de Pury

Stephen Colbert of "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central has been playing around with the art world lately, and in this video, he interviews Simon de Pury of the auction house Phillips de Pury. The New York Times has a little background, but you could also just watch the clip, which explains everything and features de Pury saying his favorite rap artist is "Snoopy Dogg," a lot touching of art, a Kehinde Wiley and a question about whether Damien Hirst is "phoning it in."

Follow-ups in the "Raging Art-On: Sale of the Centur-me" series are below.
