Conan Goes to the Middle East

Conan O’Brien recently got an invitation to travel to Qatar with First Lady Michelle Obama to entertain U.S. troops at Al Udeid Air Base. That’s all well and good, but for security reasons, they wouldn’t let Conan take video of any sort while they were traveling. That had to be difficult for a TV guy. So he had the story of the trip recreated in animation. It was a blessing in disguise. The fact that there’s no actual video of the trip allowed Conan to embellish the tale just a little. As you’ll see, he took advantage of that opportunity, without blowing his budget. (via Tastefully Offensive)
