Flaming Buddy Cole ticks off the cops in Sochi for the Colbert Report

Wow, I’m impressed by this one. Buddy Cole (aka Canadian comedian Scott Thompson) has been reporting on the Sochi Olympics for the Colbert Report, and in last night’s segment, he went to Sochi and decide to basically flame out in the center of town, asking strangers on the street where to find the gay people and more, all the while sporting a fur.

Buddy then takes us to the “protest zone” that’s apparently 50 miles outside of town. He decided to start protesting that he was out of vodka, so the cops showed up and started giving him a hard time. After what happened to Pussy Riot yesterday (getting beaten with whips for singing a song), Buddy’s got some balls doing this.  In the photo above, he’s waving to the cops (with martini glass in hand).

Here’s another shot of Buddy, with his producer trying to talk the cops out of arresting him.

I don’t know if he’s brave or stupid, but damn.
