In an era where the TV theme song has somewhat gone by the wayside, it’s good to know that some things will never change. On a recent episode of Late Night with Stephen Colbert, The Price Is Right host Drew Carey stopped by to not only answer hard-hitting questions about the long-running game show, but also to help prove a theory about its iconic theme.
Reported by Vulture, the above clip starts off with Colbert and Carey reminiscing about Colbert’s appearance on Whose Line Is It Anyway, and how Drew made him do the ONE thing he specifically asked him not to: rap. They then did a rapid fire session with questions from Colbert’s graphics department, ranging from the wheel to Plinko.
Colbert then went on to show Carey that the iconic theme from the show can turn any sour moment into a happy one, and helped prove it with scenes from The Godfather, Wicker Man, and Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring. (Not sure why Colbert used that last clip. Is he a fan? If so, I haven’t heard). Now, while I don’t think ANYTHING can make The Wicker Man better, it was nice to be able to tap my foot happily while Sonny Corleone was getting riddled with bullets.
So what do you guys think? Can the The Price Is Right theme turn any sad moment into a happy one? How many of you are queuing up last Sunday’s Walking Dead to take this theory to its limits? Let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below!
