The man most famous for creating a new platform for sharing provocative photos faced an interesting proposition last night on The Late Show.

Stephen Colbert opened his interview with Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel with a bold question: "If I could get an IMAX camera out here, could I get a photo of your balls?"

However, the late night host wasn't talking about sexy pictures -- he was applauding Spiegel for his ballsy move to turn down a $3 billion offer to purchase the company in 2013. Today, Snapchat is valued at $16 billion.
