After working on The Simpsons and creating one of the most beloved episodes in the series’ history (Monorail!), it only makes sense that Conan O’Brien would return to the world of animation.
Tossing grenades at the Russian mob while promoting Uber just wasn’t the way most would have pictured it.
On Tuesday night’s episode of Conan, the late-night host stepped out of his studio and into the cartoon world of Archer, one of FX’s most popular shows.
After getting into secret agent Sterling Archer’s car, Conan is handed a pistol and told to start shooting.
It’s all downhill from here for the two polar-opposite characters.
At first, Conan doesn’t even know where to point the gun, and when he finally does figure out, he spends the majority of time swinging it around in his hands and insulting Archer for not using Uber like, “everyone else.”
A few minutes of hilarious back-and-forth banter between the two breaks out before they’re targeted by another mobster filled jeep, leading them into the empty tunnels of Los Angeles.
This time around, Conan’s got to handle a grenade and the result is just slightly better than his first experience wielding a gun.
Usually stints like these aren’t overly funny and fail at pandering to either fan base, but the adorably obtuse Conan juxtaposed with the overwhelmingly confident Archer makes for a great five minutes of comedy.
