Denver International Airport conspiracy theories just got a boost from one Stephen Colbert. Last night, as part of The Colbert Report's preview to 2012, and those Mayan prophecies that are supposed to spell our doom, he intoned the phrase, "When the end times come, the last words you hear may just be..."
Cut to perky greeter at DIA saying, "Welcome to Denver International Airport" -- and then turning into an evil succubus!
The DIA package also features guest appearances by Jesse Ventura, Alex Jones and the Fox31 team of Libby Weaver and Ron Zappolo. But the real star of the show is William Tapley, who calls himself both "Third Eagle of the Apocalypse" and "Co-Prophet of the End Times." Tapley warbles songs of catastrophe in between talking about all the phallic symbols visible on the Demonic Blue Mustang.
Not including his actual phallus, which he apparently overlooked. See the entire extravaganza below.
