In honor of Conan O’Brien’s new show launch tonight I felt this was a timely look into the ghost of televsion past.
Sometimes you recall something from the days of television past that was so awesome that you think, “that couldn’t have really happened.”
Back in the day Hunter S Thompson made a few appearances on the Conan O’brien show. During one of these episodes Conan met him at a shooting rage where they spent the day drinking and firing off high-powered assualt weapons. Targets included cardboard stand-up displays and stuffed animals.
Here’s a clip that shows a few scenes from said episode as well as him telling some awesome tales. Letterman never did anything this rad.
