Conan cosplayed as the ‘Mad Max’ guitarist for a wild drive to SDCC

Conan O’Brien has taken his show on the road to San Diego Comic Con. The Fury Road, that is.

Conan and sidekick Andy Richter decided to drive to San Diego from their HQ in Los Angeles, which was a good idea for two reasons. First, it meant they could avoid the chaos caused by Wednesday’s pre-SDCC United Airlines shutdown. Second, they got to stage this ridiculous Mad Max: Fury Road video, in which Conan dressed up as the film’s flamethrower guitarist—arguably Hollywood’s most badass supporting character this year.

If you have a huge budget to film dumb stunt videos, this is definitely the right way to spend it.
