Stephen Colbert Debuts Candy Crush the Movie, Starring Liam Neeson
The game "Candy Crush" has been in the news quite a bit lately. The company that makes it, King, was recently sold for $5.9 billion to Activision Blizzard. During last night's Republican Presidential debate, Florida senator Marco Rubio used the game to explain how much faster technology is adapted into our society now: "It took the telephone 75 years to reach 100 million users. It took Candy Crush one year to reach 100 million users."
Activision Blizzard has recently announced they're creating their own TV and film division based on their games (which include Call of Duty and Guitar Hero). This was the perfect segue for Stephen Colbert to imagine Activision's film Candy Crush, starring none other than Liam Neeson as Mr. Toffee. It's as ridiculous and wonderful as you might imagine. Enjoy.
