ABC News' Michael Ono reports:

What is Stephen Colbert planning to do with all that Super PAC money?  His audience may finally have an answer.

The Comedy Central TV personality sent out a political fundraising email Friday accompanied with announcement that the Super PAC would launch its very first television commercial.

“Soon we'll release our first TV commercial, and send Washington a strong message: "We can afford a commercial." And that's just the beginning of the commercial. There will be twenty-six more seconds in it, chock-full of other messages.”

And while the email didn’t provide further details into the content of the commercial, the fundraising email didn’t hold back on decrying the current state of the country.

“America has forgotten who it is, where it's going, and how it got there. It's like America is the protagonist in one of those TV crime shows where a good cop loses his memories in an accident and has to piece them back together while solving a new murder every week. Luckily, America has help from a sexy love interest: Me”

Colbert recently received approval by the Federal Election Commission to establish a Super PAC that allows him to collect money for a political cause and to promote his Super PAC on his television show which is owned by Viacom.
