Conan Oâ Brien released the video clip of his accident during a stunt on the tonight show, which landed the funny man in the hospital on Friday. Read more about it here.
On Fridayâs episode of the âTonight Showâ Conan Oâ Brien suffered a concussion via a sketch gone terribly wrong. The lanky comedian, who is equipped with awkwardly long legs, was racing Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher in a staged triathlon, and he had her beat too. That of course was before he busted right in front of the finish line, and severely slammed his head smack dab into the floor.
In the video clip from the incident you can hear the disturbing sound of Oâ Brienâs head hitting the floor, before it proceeded to bounce off of it in a way that a noggin was never intended to bounce. He was surprisingly tough after sustaining the injury though, and immediately popped back up to finish the skit before later being sent to the hospital.
The well-seasoned veteran of the industry took it in stride making light of the incident on Mondayâs show. In the monologue he said:
“As many of you may know, on this past Friday’s show I was doing a stunt and I hit my head and suffered a slight concussion. And I promise, if you’re a good audience, I’ll do it again tonight.”
He also joked about how for his next stunt Eva Longoria would shove him âdown an elevator shaft,â and that the injury to his head âactually understoodâ the plot of the show LostâŚWe all know thatâs a complete lie Mr. Oâ Brien! Nobody understands the plot of Lost, not even J.J. Abrams.
