Ice Cream Wars Stephen Colbert vs Jimmy Fallon

Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon are two late night titans, who much like the European Nations prior to World War 1, were destined to be driven into conflict in an attempt to demonstrate their superiority. However, it could also be attributed to these comedians loving their jobs and having a playful rivalry with each other. Who Knows? This will be a question for historians in future centuries.

The War

It has been awhile since best friends/greatest enemies Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert have declared war on each other. Since this conflict begun; it has crossed NBC and Comedy Central, millions of fans have been drawn into the battle and countless ice cream shops have been caught in the cross-hairs. As with most wars, news media from across the country were covering this breaking story. However, soon interest to this dragged out struggle was no longer holding the public’s interest and the news moved onto different headlines.

After a while many people did not realized this war was still in progress. Both sides seemed to have dropped active engagement and were holding at an uneasy standstill, much like North and South Korea, where the slightest error could trigger a full scale retaliation. Most people remember the shameless plugs made by both sides, but have forgotten about the fans who were forced to choose sides by finding ways to desecrate their opponents ice cream.

My Participation

I did not take sides in this conflict. However, I did see the perfect opportunity to take a popular topic and try to use it to my advantage. It occurred to me that an interesting twist in the Ice Cream War would be a series of sketches that tried create a peace between these mortal enemies. While fans of Fallon and Colbert were trying to get their videos aired on these late night shows or placed on their respective websites by escalating their efforts, I would play off both audiences.

The Ice Cream

Ben and Jerry’s had created an ice cream for Stephen Colbert called Americone Dream. It has a vanilla based ice cream with fudge covered waffle cones and swirls of caramel. Later, they would make an ice cream for Jimmy Fallon called Late Night Snack. This one would have a vanilla bean ice cream with fudge covered potato chip clusters and a swirl of salty caramel. For some reason both celebrities feel their ice cream flavor tastes the best and their adversary’s tastes like dog swill.

My Review

Stephen Colbert donates his profits to various charities that benefit the environment, military families, and disadvantaged children. I am not sure if Fallon does the same, but I know that Fallon also is a very generous celebrity. When it comes to flavor, they are both fantastic. Even when I put them together, they still had an amazing flavor. They are very similar are chances are if you enjoyed one, you will enjoy the other.
