Both Coldplay and Colbert have won Grammys, which Martin makes light of during their conversation. “May I ask what your Grammy was for?” he asks the Colbert Report host. “It was for Best Christmas Album,” Colbert replies.
Chris jokes that he’s working on a Christmas album, which will be much better than the “conservative” commentator’s. That prompts this classy response: “Well, fuck you.”
