Conan O’Brien isn’t much of a video games guy, hence why he has an ongoing segment on his TBS late-night talk show Conan called “Clueless Gamer.” However, with news as major as the Sonic redesign for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, Conan had no choice but to talk about it on air. In fact, in a big surprise, he revealed they had the new Sonic in all his glory to show off to the studio audience. But it turned out just to be a big gag for the late-night comedian, as the “Sonic” that came out wore a hideous costume… that featured a giant, flailing member.
Conan digitized the beef sausage, which is much appreciated in spite of its just being part of a costume. Ultimately, the gag is crass, extremely unimaginative, and just outright stupid — but still pretty funny. And the jokes made aren’t entirely pulled out of thin air; it’s pretty easy to poke fun at a situation where thousands of people complained so vocally that a movie studio decided to delay a movie by three months to appease them.
Do you watch Conan O’Brien much, and would you prefer this, uh, Sonic redesign over the one we got? Let us know your creepy opinions.
