This Friday’s edition of “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” will be devoted entirely to the trip he took to Finland, where he has a huge following due to looking exactly like the country’s president. Conan replied to the God-like worship from the Nordic people to the Associated Press:
“(David) Hasselhoff is big in Germany, but I’m the king of Finland. When you see a telephoto lens shot taken from some bushes by a paparazzi, what you’re used to seeing is Brad Pitt making out with Angelina Jolie or
Michael Jackson being rushed through a mall in a weird disguise. But the shots of me were of this very pale guy staring sadly at the Baltic Sea.”
What remains to be seen is if Conan will give himself entirely over to the Finnish people the way Hasselhoff has with the Germans. Go ahead, click it. I dare you.
