Conan Takes A Samurai Sword To The Gut

CONAN Highlight: When Steven Ho hooks up Conan to a blood tube for his latest stunt, the entire set gets transformed into a Tarantino movie.

Transcript:

STEVEN HO: This is a retractable sword.
And maybe you've noticed but you have a long hose.
CONAN: They put this -- I don't know exactly whatness about.
I don't know who this guy is.
[laughter]
but there's a lot of trust in this segment.
STEVEN HO: So a blood tube to you.
CONAN: Yes.
STEVEN HO: So this is a retractable samurai sword.
It doesn't hurt too much.
There's a little bit of pain with it.
But once you press it in it collapses onto itself.
CONAN: OK.
STEVEN HO: And at that point Eric will release a giant flow of blood.
And it's your job at that point to really sell this.
Like you're getting stabbed by me.
CONAN: OK.
I'm a very good actor.
STEVEN HO: OK.
So here we go.
Eric, are you ready for this?
CONAN: Hold it, hold it, make sure you're ready -- all right.
Blood's coming.
That hurts the illusion a little bit.
Last last --
[laughter]
I actually had this problem.
ANDY: OK.
So  STEVEN HO: So I'm going to stick my sword inside of you --
CONAN: Can we make sure you know what you're doing?
I'm wearing a little protective covering here.
STEVEN HO: I'll have to press pretty hard because if you move off the pad it's going to puncture you.
CONAN: But then no one would come to My rescue because blood would shoot through and you think the effect is going perfectly and I would die.
STEVEN HO: Here we go.
Three, two, -- oh!
[laughter]
three, two, one --
[cheers and applause]
[cheers and applause]
