Conan O'Brien Shows Us What It's Really Like to Visit Cuba

Where: Havana, Cuba
March 5, 2015 at 2:24 PM | by | ()

Conan O’Brien made history last night when he aired an episode of his late night talk show that was filmed entirely in Cuba, making him the first American late-night talk show host to broadcast from the country since Jack Paar interviewed Fidel Castro for The Tonight Show in 1959.

O'Brien, along with a small crew, spent four days in Havana, Cuba over Presidents' Day weekend with no real plan, other than trying to meet the people of Cuba and "make friends."

Seth Rogen Knows All About High-Altitude Hangovers

April 15, 2013 at 4:25 PM | by | ()

Here's a video clip of Seth Rogen talking about hangover flying on Conan O'Brien from earlier this month. Given the staggering number of ways that this is directly in our wheelhouse—celebrity travel, booze travel, a full post we once did about hangover clauses in airline tickets, etc—it's almost embaressing that we missed it when it went up.

In fairness to us, we were probably drunk.

Conan O'Brien Fuses the Worlds of SkyMall and Skyrim

June 21, 2012 at 12:24 PM | by | ()

We're night people here at Jaunted. We like them red-eye flights. We're also definitely Conan-over-Leno people, and luckily last night we were tuned in when Conan O'Brien showed a bit on "new video games." After "Super Diabetic Mario Bros" and "Grand Theft Auto: Texting While Driving," Conan hits the spot with a play on SkyMall, fusing it with the popular fantasy world "SkyRim" video game.

Not going to spoil it all for you, but the Touchless Sensor Toilet Seat does make a cameo.

Watch it from 2:10 - 2:50 in the video below:

Conan's Giant Bobblehead (Almost) Finds a Home at Harold's Chicken Shack

June 18, 2012 at 2:33 PM | by | ()

Last week, while taping his nightly talk show at the Chicago Theatre, Conan O'Brien promised to leave the city of Chicago a "gift"—a giant bobblehead in his likeness—at a local landmark of their choosing.

During a skit on Thursday's show it seemed like Conan was going to keep his promise as the 30-foot bobblehead was carefully installed outside the Art Institute of Chicago. There was just one problem, no one told the museum's staff and the giant Conan head was quickly booted.

The TSA is Eager to Strip Search Your Wrapped Holiday Gifts

November 15, 2011 at 11:10 AM | by | ()

While we don't get all of our news from watching Conan O'Brien late at night—okay just most of it. kidding. maybe.—he did make a sharp joke in last night's monologue. Noting that the TSA will unwrap all wrapped holiday gifts at airport security points this season—the first time they've been this thorough with it—Conan joked that they're doing this because they "need a break from looking at your junk all day."

Oh yes, and don't forget that they'll confiscate your snow globes like usual.

Some clarification from the TSA's "Blogger Bob" on the issue:

Conan Goofs on TSA Baby Pat-down: The Video

May 13, 2011 at 12:26 PM | by | ()

The comedy is in reference to this story, which you've probably already heard about, where TSA agents at MCI pulled aside a baby after its stroller triggered an explosives alarm. A pastor named Jacob Jester snapped a photo of the subsequent patdown and uploaded it to yfrog/Twitter—because that's where all news starts—and from there it went viral. Then last Wednesday Conan did a bit on it, and now we're posting the Conan clip, and that children, is the Internet circle of life.

Regarding the actual substance of the story...yeah, listen. This is going to be one of those rare times when we come down on TSA's side. Airports are on heightened alert in the aftermath of the Bin Laden killing. Terrorists have tried to smuggle bombs into planes before by planting them even on pregnant women. The baby's stroller tested positive for traces of explosives. What did you expect the TSA agents to do? Not give the kid a once-over?
