Mad Max: Fury Road just went from furiously apocalyptic to hilariously nerdy thanks to our favourite ginger late night host and his lovable sidekick.
In honour of Conan heading to San Diego for a week of shows being taped at Comicon, O’Brien and his partner in crime Andy Richter decided to road trip to the annual comic mega-event in true Mad Max fashion…by tearing down Interstate 5 in a futuristic caravan packed with giant blaring speakers. Who wants to fly anyway?
Andy, dressed as Immortan Joe, is seen driving the intimidating caravan while Conan, dressed as a pasty Doof Warrior, shreds a fire blazing guitar on the roof.
While this all sounds just as terrifying as the movie, the fact that the pair take time to sip coffee, roast hot dogs and experience navigation problems with their phone’s GPS app makes the spoof far more Conan than Mad Max, and thus pretty damn cool.
It’s also a good reminder that Conan knows how to shred a guitar like a rock god and that Andy needs to remember his ear plugs. You gotta see this bit!
Watch Conan weeknights at 1:30am ET on CTV.
