Video: Stephen Colbert Plays Fondue Pong at the Vancouver Winter Olympics Swiss House

20100225-colbert-fonduepong.jpg

On Tuesday's episode of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert visited a few of the national houses at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. When he met with Swiss House director Manuel Salchli, he challenged him to a bout of fondue pong. It's just like beer pong except instead of cheapo frat party beer, you try to land the ball in a pot of scalding fondue. And following traditional pong rules, this means the loser has to chug back the cheese ooze.

But who's really the loser here? Is imbibing $30 of melted Swiss cheese really a bad thing? All right, maybe a little. The video is about seven minutes, so if you're just interested in the fondue action, skip to 1:15. After about 3:30, Colbert moves onto the Irish House and Russian House (where nothing fondue-related happens). Watch the video, after the jump.
