Stephen Colbert Is America, Freedom, and Waze’s Newest GPS Voice

"You have reached your destination. I'm surprised. To be honest, I wasn't paying attention."

Hello, America. You’re now reading this in Stephen Colbert’s voice.

If you own a car, like any red-blooded freedom-loving American should, then it stands to reason that you also use a GPS application on your phone to navigate to your favorite all-American locations: The Freedom Store, the American Flag Store, and McDonalds. If that GPS application also happens to be Waze, then here’s your chance at something really special: you can have the voice of freedom himself, Stephen Colbert, guide you on your daily errands to pick up some freedom, mini-flags, and some chicken nuggets.

You can see so for yourself in the YouTube video Colbert made. What a country.
