Conan O’Brien Inspects a Kotzbecken and Confronts Harald Schmidt’s Producer

I stumbled on this 1997 Conan O'Brien segment recently. Far from his best work, but of sociological value for showing Americans a genuine German Kotzbecken (puking-sink) and, even more entertainingly, exposing Harald Schmidt's relentless plagiarism of American late-night television:

Just underneath the video: DISABLING COMMENTS – YOU PEOPLE ARE ALL CHILDISH DOLTS. THIS IS A COMEDY VIDEO. ENOUGH WITH THE COUNTRY BASHING.

Arrgh, what I would have given to read those. Perhaps we can re-create some COUNTRY BASHING right here, folks — what do you say?

  1. Harald Schmidt is like Apple: Watching what the others are doing wrong, entering the market late and then doing it better then all others before.

    I must strongly object to that! Country is a perfectly fine form of music, as long as you stay away from the terribly whitewashed Nashville mainstream. May I suggest some Steve Earle, or perhaps Darrell Cott? “You’ll never leave Harlan alive” is a modern classic, after all!

    (I’m sorry, but you *know* it had to be done.)
