Stephen Colbert crashed the stage at the Republican National Convention Sunday night dressed as Caesar Flickerman from The Hunger Games.

A part of the magical moment was captured by Cassandra Fairbanks and posted to Twitter. (Fairbanks' video was uploaded without her permission and without credit to YouTube on Sunday night by a third party and has been viewed more than 4 million times.)

After being deposited back on the convention floor, Colbert appeared to be filming with a camera crew, so there was hope we might get to see a full version of his antics.
