Late-night talk show host Stephen Colbert and comedic actor Nick Kroll felt crushed by the news coming in from Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. In response, Colbert and Kroll promised to donate funds to relief efforts for Puerto Rico whenever a famous person shared an embarrassing throwback photo on social media and added #PuberMe in the caption. The fun challenge had a great response with many stars uploading hilarious pictures that gave people a laugh and kept everyone talking about the need for aid and funds for Puerto Rico. Here are some of the best pictures, starting with Colbert's:
