A week ago, Conan O’Brien announced his “Conan’s VD Explosion” Contest, inviting couples from across the United States to submit videos of themselves (get your minds out of the gutter) eating together. The stars of the video judged to exhibit the best mix of creativity, interpersonal chemistry, and table manners will be flown to California to eat a Valentine’s Day dinner on the set of Conan—DURING THE SHOW.
Win, and not only do you get to share a once-in-a-lifetime experience with your significant other, but with that national TV exposure, the two of you will probably be co-hosting Access Hollywood by the next day.
That’s all the motivation I needed.
Here I present to you the video my wife, Jenny, and I submitted. I obviously owe her a huge debt of gratitude for agreeing to go along with this. Fortunately, I did buy her a pretty sweet purse for her birthday a couple of weeks ago, so maybe we’re even.
Eh, probably not.
Also, this wouldn’t have been possible without our friend Erin, who dedicated part of her Sunday night to shooting the action and no doubt has a new appreciation for just what Jenny has to deal with on a daily basis. Thanks, Erin.
Conan’s team determines the winner, so I’m not looking for votes like last Monday. We just invested some time in this, and since it will probably never see the light of day otherwise, I want to put it to good use. And who knows? Maybe, just maybe, it will be our ticket to Hollywood.
Keep our seats warm, Billy Bush.
