“I might do a woo,” says a lovely young woman who staffs Conan O’Brien when he crashes the girls’ night out outing to see Magic Mike XXL. I’m not usually one to tuck into a nine-minute-long YouTube clip, but watching Conan join all his ladies for a night out of what equates to pure ogling of man flesh is both hilariously awkward and endearing. Take the time you need and watch Conan out-dad even the worst dad on a trip to a rom com with his daughter and her friends.
From the executive assistant who shuts down his hug to the dance routine that leads to a lot of staring at the floor and some pixelated chest region, the living room scene is downright uncomfortable in some moments. But you gotta give him credit. He rented a limo, and he is taking his ladies out in style.
Did the feminist in me just cringe while writing those words? Yes, yes she did.
It’s clear watching the video though that the ladies are all in on the joke so I’m trying to tamp my cringing down to a minimal level, and I promise not to directly bring it up again.
Magic Mike XXL opened in theaters to great success on July 1st. So far, all the reviews my girlfriends have texted, tweeted, and Facebooked have been incredibly positive. It looks like the women on Conan’s staff definitely had a good time though. Who doesn’t want a free ticket to a midnight showing of the hottest movie of the summer…with their boss? If I knew it was going to be as fun as this appears to be though, I’d probably say yes to be honest. They all looked like they had a really good time. And you want to stay through the end of the video. Trust me.
