Stephen Colbert’s ‘Hidden Fences’ Trailer Is Hilarious [WATCH]

Subscribe to TheBoombox on

When Jenna Bush Hager and actor Michael Keaton accidentally combined two popular black movies— Hidden Figures starring Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer and Fences directed by and starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis—they probably didn’t anticipate being in the middle of so much backlash.

Besides being lambasted on social media — especially Bush Hager who gave a tearful apology — late night host Stephen Colbert actually created a trailer on what the Hidden Fences movie would look like.

Since the flub, many have accused the former First Daughter and Keaton of confusing both releases simply because they have majority black casts. Colbert’s trailer captured the moment comically, and previewed the story of a U.S. mission to send an actual fence into space.

“This summer see the movie white people at the Golden Globes were talking about,” the guy in the clip said.

Then later, the man surmised what many people have accused Bush Hager and Keaton of.

“Based on the true story of people who think movies about black people are the same movie, Hidden Fences. Features a cast of black actors, black actresses, Kevin Costner and of course a fence.”
