Three million people visited the "Take Our Jobs" website, 8,600 expressed interest in taking a job, but only seven people actually showed to take United Farm Workers up on its offer of a job in agriculture.
On Friday, Colbert took his message to Congress.
With a mix of satire and sincerity, Colbert's speech urged Congress to pass the AgJOBS bill, which would provide a legal, stable labor supply and help ensure that farmworkers are treated fairly.
Fighting back fake tears, he said to Congress about his time on the farm, "I have to say, and I do mean this sincerely: Please don't make me do this again. It is really, really hard."
We're not sure that the humor was completely appreciated by our lawmakers, but Colbert left everyone with a few noteworthy messages and, hopefully, a push toward immigration reform.
