Who knew awkward pictures from adolescence could wind up being helpful?
Comedian Nick Kroll appeared on Stephen Colbert’s “The Late Show” on Wednesday to promote his new show “Big Mouth,” a Netflix cartoon that takes a humorous look at puberty. During the interview, Kroll asked celebrities to tweet their puberty pictures using the hashtag “#PuberMe.”
“Puberty is a really scary thing,” Kroll said. “There’s catharsis in sort of showing who we are and what we became, and I’d love to encourage celebrities (to share).”
Never miss a local story.
That’s when Colbert upped the stakes and offered to donate money from his AmeriCone Dream Fund, which donates the proceeds from his Ben and Jerry’s AmeriCone Dream flavored ice cream to charity, toward natural disaster relief.
“For every celebrity that puts up a puberty picture of when they’re 13 ... I’ll give a donation from the Americone Dream Fund ... to Puerto Rico hurricane relief,” Colbert said.
Kroll then agreed to match the donations.
So far, the pictures have been spectacular.
