Stephen Colbert Spies on the Spies Playing Second Life

Last week, Jon Stewart tackled the absurdity of the NSA spying on World of Warcraft because there might be terrorists playing it or something. This week, The Colbert Report chimed in with a look at spying on Second Life—"a game for people who don't have a first one!"


The action picks up around the 1:10 mark, where the Report goes inside a SL discotheque to discover it completely overrun by witless snoops. If Second Life is indeed "an opportunity" to find terrorists living fantasy lives through heavily-tatted avatars with impossible physiques, Colbert suspects he knows where the NSA is now lurking.
