Stephen Colbert capped his Grammy monologue last year by reaching under his suit jacket and pulling out an iPad — four days after Steve Jobs unveiled it and two months before it went on sale.

It was, as we wrote at the time, a triumph of product placement.

This year Colbert isn’t getting any special treatment from Apple AAPL . At least not yet. He gave it his best shot in the opening of Monday’s Colbert Report.

You can see the bit on Comedy Central’s website, or below.
