Rob Lowe tells Conan about the time he shot a TV show next to a dildo factory

Eternally youthful actor Rob Lowe took some time out from his weird DirecTV commercials on Monday night to appear on Conan, where he delighted the audience with a wonderful tale about a dildo factory. 

Lowe’s quickly cancelled 2003 show The Lyon’s Den, which was supposed to be his follow-up to The West Wing, was apparently shot in a warehouse next to a dildo factory.  

Conan O’Brien‘s sidekick Andy Richter, who appeared in an episode of the show, confirmed this tidbit, adding that the day he filmed his scenes, the hills around the studio were ablaze. 

“The dildo people were running for the hills,” Lowe added. 

Admit it: You’d watch an entire series of Rob Lowe’s dildo factory memories.
