On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the host was inspired by his interview with Nick Kroll the other night, to take Kroll’s idea of asking celebrities to tweet awkward pictures of themselves during puberty but to add the #PuertoRicoRelief in order to raise money for the hurricane aftermath crisis that the island is facing. But Colbert needed a dollar amount. So when he asked Kroll what amount he thought each photo should be worth, Kroll picked an amount he wasn’t expecting -- one thousand dollars. “Jesus!” said Colbert.
Colbert is using his Americone Dream Fund to throw down the pricey $1000 per awkward photo and celebrities jumped right in, including Sarah Silverman, Adam Richman, Kumail Nanjiani and Aidy Bryant.
“Aidy Bryant sent this one,” said Colbert, showing off Bryant’s chubby faced school pic. “I believe this was the yearbook where she was voted ‘Most likely to become a thoughtful squirrel.’”
As celebrities continue to tweet their puberty pics with #PuberMe and #PuertoRicoRelief all the photos are certainly going towards a very worthy cause, but the more awkward, the better.
