Conan Obrien Tenth Anniversary DVD Promo An Ad-Filled Disappointment
Rick Bruner was hoping Conan Obrien's 10th anniversary DVD "faux infomercial" episode would capture the humor normally found on the show. He thought otherwise.
It was supposed to be funny, but Conan's full-length infomercial for his "Late Night with Conan O'Brien 10th Anniversary Special DVD" was just lame and an actual infomercial. The joke was on us suckers who actually watched it.
www.shopnbc.com/conan flashes frequently on the screen along with 800 YO-MAMA-IS-A-SKANK (not the real number, but I won't give them the satisfaction).
To add (or should I say "ad"?) insult to injury, this hour-long ha-ha infomercial was frequently interrupted with, yes, commercials for the usual litany of advertisers.
Beyond lame. Desperate and soulless is more like it.
