Who knew Stephen Colbert was an Apple employee?

In a lighthearted gag to demonstrate Apple's new Continuity feature, Craig Federighi, the company's senior vice president of software engineering, called Colbert on the phone during Thursday's iPad event. The two had a quick back-and-forth in which Colbert complained that his "job title" of chief secrecy officer wasn't regal enough. He suggests "supreme allied commander of super-secrecy" or "intergalactic chancellor."

Colbert even took a swipe at Federighi for Apple's not having released the Apple Watch yet: "Do you know what I see when I look at my wrist? My wrist!"

Federighi's and Colbert's full segment appears below.
