When most girls my age were kissing framed photos of Devon Sawa or putting posters of Rider Strong up in their lockers, I was developing a habit of sneaking downstairs in the middle of the night to watch Late Night with Conan O’Brien. (OK, fine, I also had posters of Leonardo DiCaprio and JTT, but let’s forget about that for a moment, for the sake of this intro.) I had a number of favorite sketches—desk driving, “If They Mated,” cameos from “Andy’s sister” played by Amy Poehler, and the Synchro-Vox segments with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, etc.—but none had me LOLing so hard as the remote segments that took Conan to various exotic locales like the Teen Beat offices or the American Girl store. The dude is excellent on his feet.
Twenty-odd years later, these are still my favorite segments in Conan’s TBS show, but now, I can stay up as late as I want! In anticipation of Coco hosting tomorrow’s MTV Movie Awards (Sunday, April 13, 9 p.m. EST on MTV), I’ve gathered up some of my favorite remote clips—ones that had a hilarious bent on some aspect of style, whether that means shopping, trying out beauty techniques, or undergoing several wildly different outfit changes. TBH, I’ve been watching these well into the early a.m. hours every night this week, so I might as well share them. Enjoy!
