1. Conan Shows Off His Sharktopus Billboard

Conan Shows Off His Sharktopus Billboard

Conan is so proud of his Roger Corman-produced SyFy movie that he bought a billboard to pimp for award consideration.


CONAN: I've been a television talk show host for almost 21 years, almost 21 years I've been doing this gig.
ANDY: Your plan worked perfectly.
CONAN: Please.
Clearly if you watch the show regularly, I've mastered the form, you know?
I attained a level of perfection that cannot be equaled in the talk show --
ANDY: You're like a Jedi master of talk showism --
CONAN: Of talk showism which is not even even a word.
I thought I would premier as a television actor.
I don't have that much time. I'm 87 years old.
This is a bad wig.
I don't have a lot of time.
So I chose the first and only film role offered to me.
I'm talk about the powerful real life drama "Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda."
[Cheers and applause]
Thank you.
Thank you.
Of course, it's the story of a creature that's part shark, part octopus who battles a creature who's part pterodactyl, part barracuda.
It's produced by Roger Coreman producer of "women in cages" and "death rates 2000."
Now we shot the movie, OK, and I am very proud of my work on this film and I wanted the whole world to know about it.
So here's what I did.
I demanded a billboard so everyone can see it.
They'll all see my billboard and that makes me an A-lister overnight.
Unfortunately, I found out several hours ago that the prime real estate on sunset strip was not available.
So I got the next best thing, check it out.
A prominent spot in the heart of L.A.'s historic great and alignment district.
Look at that beautiful poster.
[Cheers and applause]
That's got to be what?
60 feet long.
It's gorgeous, yeah.
There's of course, tons of foot traffic in that area.
There we go.
My billboard has views some of the city's natural beauty which is very nice.
But I got a great discount on this billboard because it has a partially obstructed view.
Check it out.
Yeah, pretty nice, right?
Best of all, you don't have to travel all the way to Sundance or Cannes to see this film.
I demand that it would be available to every man, woman and child with a tier II cable package.
You don't have to buy a ticket.
This premiers on the SyFy channel, August 2nd, at 9:00 p.m.
eastern time with an encore presentation August 30th.
This is happening!
This is big!
[Cheers and applause]
I'm going to be a movie star!
ANDY: I lost my respect for you about 15 years ago.
But I've got it back now.
CONAN: Yeah!
