On Tuesday’s episode of The Late Show, Colbert enlisted the furry pink creatures known as the Snowths to provide the backing vocals for a Spicer-led remix of “Mah Na Mah Na,” substituting “phenomenal” for the nonsense phrase.
It worked surprisingly well, thanks in part to the Snowths’ signature “do doo do do doos.”
Sean Spicer has responded to Colbert’s video gag, tweeting that he owes Politico writer credit for first noticing his love of the word “phenomenal.”

Colbert went ahead and did just that, with a hat-tip on Twitter.
