Watch Stephen Colbert Spoof Billie Eilish ‘Bad Guy’ as Next James Bond Theme

She's the Bond guy...duh. On Thursday (Jan. 17), Stephen Colbert used his "Meanwhile..." segment on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to spoof Billie Eilish's theme song for the upcoming James Bond flick No Time to Die.

After riffing on a series of increasingly absurd headlines from recent news, the late night host addressed the recent news that Eilish would be taking up the torch as the next 007 crooner, following in the footsteps of Sam Smith and Adele. However, Colbert quipped that he just didn't get how the 18-year-old pop star's whole vibe was supposed to mesh with the secret agent's immortally chic brand. "Am I supposed to dance or pass this video along so I don't die in seven days?" he joked after playing a clip from Eilish's "Bad Guy" visual. 

However, he seems to have worked it out, rewriting the Hot 100 chart topper as a humorous music video for the film. "James Bond/ You are a super spy/ Movie/ It's called 'No Time to Die'/ Get drunk, have and shoot a gun/ Being James Bond sounds fun/ He's a Bond guy...duh," a green-haired Eilish doppleganger whisper-sings in the spoof while bopping through scenes of artfully fired guns and men in suits, all while in a yellow sweatsuit similar to the one worn by the star in the original video.

As the 25th installment in the long-running James Bond series, No Time To Die is set to hit theaters nationwide on April 10, so fans will have to wait a bit longer to hear what Eilish really has in store for the movie's theme song.
