Last night on The Late Show, David Letterman noted the writers approval of the new contract by having the WGA’s Dave Young and the AMPTP’s Nick Counter come out onstage at the Ed Sullivan Theater. And shake hands. And hug. And then lip-lock for a passionate 2-minute kiss. And then keep kissing throughout the show. Suffice it to say, these weren’t the real Dave Young and Nick Counter. See the video here.
