The tub makes for an amusing setting: The comedian’s body gets contorted into a weird angle and water swells all around him.

“You gotta be careful you don’t drop your phone in it,” he warned. “I’ve had some success there.” 

But Gervais wanted to one-up himself, so he and Conan took a bath TwitPic together in the studio. Understandably hesitant, Gervais convinced Conan to undress himself, and in they went. 

What commenced was an awkward, bubble-filled moment that will forever be imprinted in our memories—and on film.
