The Ginger Giant of Pink City

16 Nov

Personally, I thought this ad and especially its behind-the-scenes was way funnier than his new show. Conan speaking Hindi is just as hilarious as you’d expect, not to mention the sheepish-half bewildered local talent he towers over. I’m a little concerned about his upcoming remake of Outsourced though.

Noooo. Don’t do it, Coco!

    I watched it for the first time last night and loved it too. My favorite scene where he mimes “call me” to the old woman. 🙂

      I think Craigy Ferg has taken over his mantle of Late Night greatness but he’ll forever be Coco!

    I love conan. And i love his new show even if it isnt as funny as I know it can be (and I so badly want it to be).

    Craig Ferguson, Amrita?? (Except for his accent)BLASPHEMY!

    I dont know if we can be friends anymore. THAT’s how much I love Coco. So there.

        What ovaries? Gone With The Wind. (Apparently, I’d been walking around with dynamite strapped to them, and clicking the play button on Sheen turned out to be the fateful, er, “step four”.)

        But seriously, Beckinsale left him? Bet her body ran out of raunchy-humour-digesting enzymes or something, at the end of 11 years.

    Omg- that was absolutely my reaction. The ad is lovely, and always makes me smile, but the show just cant compete. I did used to like Conan a lot- dunno what happened in this new show…

      Is Jan a dude?:)
      I had a theory Conan is more accessible to guys.Most girls seem to think he is silly and annoying.The most charitable comment I have been able to elicit is that he is funny only because he is “cute”.

    CheeC – Beckinsale is nuts! That’s the only explanation. Also, I see you’re worthy of this gift! Use it wisely because it might suck you into its clutches and eat up all your working hours.

    Shweta – right? I’m rooting for him to succeed though.

    Sachita – The Ginger Giant cometh!

    Rahul – Jan is whoever Jan wants to be 🙂 Oh no, I think he’s funny, and so does pretty much everyone I went to school with. He’s just kind of lost his mojo for a bit. Sheer rage got it back for him on those last few weeks of The Tonight Show but 10 years ago his was THE show. Letterman, Coco and Craigy Ferg come in a continuum imo.
