Three College of Charleston students filmed this video of Stephen Colbert's "THE ROCK ME LIKE A HERMAN CAIN: SOUTH CAIN-OLINA PRIMARY RALLY" which filled the College of Charleston's historic Cistern Yard. Over 5,000 people were at the rally and thousands more watched from the streets surrounding the Cistern Yard. More than 150 members of international media were present. The rally will air on "The Colbert Report" on Monday, January 23, 2012.

For a week now, Stephen Colbert, host of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report," has been calling on South Carolinians who share his values to vote for Herman Cain during this Saturday's South Carolina Republican Presidential primary. The rally supported their non-candidacies.

Colbert and Cain will emerged from Cain's bus and marched through Porter's Lodge into the Cistern Yard where they spoke from a stage over the Cistern. The rally included the College of Charleston cheerleaders, dance team, pep band, and renowned gospel choir, which is comprised of 150 voices.

Colbert says, "Herman is the only former candidate who truly shares my values. It's like our values were separated at birth. And our ethics are at least first cousins."
