Philippe Petit On... I'm Not Sure What

This is an older clip from The Colbert Report featuring Philippe Petit. I found his adventure to walk on a tight rope between the twin towers, as recounted in Man on Wire, inspirational, and he is used as an example of making creativity a priority in Broke is Beautiful. This interview was a fairly absurdist. It is here because at one point Petit espouses a "broke is beautiful" philosophy by explaining that he is from another planet and doesn't understand money. Enjoy.
