Colbert Advises Oatmeal 'Spokeswalrus' Wilford Brimley

The Quaker Oats mascot (whose name, apparently, is Larry) has gotten a little bit of a makeover: a new haircut, a tan, lost some weight, got rid of his double chin. Stephen Colbert is all for mascot plastic surgery; after all, "Think how much better the Michelin Man would look after some lap band surgery?" Not everyone's a fan, though, and so the oatmeal company's "spokeswalrus" Wilford Brimley turns to Colbert for advice in this brave new mascot landscape.
