Comedian Stephen Colbert, future host of the The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, accepted former Daily Show co-star and HBO host John Oliver’s challenge to do 20 pushups in support of American veterans. Note, and chuckle at, the piece of paper pinned to a bulletin board that says “THINGS TO SUPPORT: -Troops -Veterans -Lumbar”.

The late-night host is the latest celebrity to participate in the #GiveThem20 campaign, which challenges Americans to do pushups or sit-ups to support veterans. Other stars that have promoted the cause include Jimmy Kimmel, Jon Stewart, Rob Riggle, Carson Daly, Will Arnett and the Rockettes.
