Daft Punk were forced to pull out of their scheduled appearance on The Colbert Report last night, due to a contract dispute with MTV.

The duo were meant to appear as part of the cleverly named, 'StePhest Colbchella'. But, because of a surprise appearance lined up for this year's MTV VMA Awards, they would have violated their contractual obligation made with the VMAs.

Though, Comedy Central - where The Colbert Report is broadcast - and MTV are both owned by Viacom. So, The Colbert Report was to still go ahead with the Daft Punk performance, Viacom would have been suing itself.
