Watch Conan O'Brien try to cross the Mexican border
Late night talk show host and international man of comedy Conan O’Brien is headed to Mexico in tonight’s special installment of Conan.
Conan Without Borders: Made in Mexico was filmed in Mexico City with the assistance of an all-Mexican staff, crew, guests, and studio audience. Those guests include Rogue One star Diego Luna and former Mexican president Vicente Fox. The special will see O’Brien play a masked Mexican wrestler named “The Crazy Rooster,” pop up on the soap opera Mi Adorable Maldicion (My Adorable Curse), and attend a quinceañera.
The opening of the special has been released in advance of tonight’s airing, and you will find O’Brien making a run/long walk for the border. The Mexican authorities do not seem pleased to greet this American visitor, especially after he shows them a video of himself in action. (“Clearly they’re not sending us their best,” says one of the border patrolmen, a jab at Donald Trump’s controversial comments.) We should also note that O’Brien’s suitcase contains plenty of SPF 85 sunscreen, some Taco Bell, and a Trump Hotel towel. Watch the video above.
Conan Without Borders: Made in Mexico airs at 10 p.m. on TBS.
