This is the future of television right here. Stick Conan O’Brien, Kevin Hart and Ice Cube in a car with a member of public and watch them drive around abusing drivers, buying weed and smoking up a storm.
Regular readers of this website, (yes, all two of you), will know we’re massive fans of US chat show host Conan O’Brien and in particular the videos he makes.
His latest addition might just be his best yet, which sees him attempt to recreate scenes from the recently released male stripper movie Magic Mike XXL, in front of his assistant and her friends as they prepare to got to the cinema and watch the movie.
He really is the king of making people feel awkward and uncomfortable.
So David Letterman signed off from The Late Show for the final time last night, bringing the curtain down on an illustrious 33 year career as the greatest chat show host that ever lived. I grew up watching Letterman and even though I’m from the other side of the pond I had a fond appreciation for the man’s laid-back, nonplussed approach to being a chat show host.
Of course the final show was an emotional affair and following his farewell the Foo Fighters, (as requested by the man himself), played a live version of Everlong as viewers were treated to a fantastic montage of Letterman’s time spent entertaining the masses.
This is how you do a proper send-off.
N.B. And how’s this for a gesture. Rival chat show host Conan O’Brien urged all of his viewers to change the channel to watch Letterman’s farewell while he was hosting his own show. Classy.
As a person who frequently enjoys gaming I can fully appreciate Conan’s desperate attempt to understand what the fuss is about, especially when it comes to World Of Warcraft, a world which I’m rather proud to say I know nothing about.
