Conan O’Brien Listens to Producer Talk STAR WARS for 7 Minutes

Not every moment filmed for a late night comedy series is guaranteed to make it into the show. Luckily, the internet is the perfect home for those moments. Conan O’Brien shared an extended dialogue he had with his long-time Conan associate producer, Jordan Schlansky. According to O’Brien, he ordered Schlansky to dress as Spock and congratulate Star Trek fans on the anniversary of the franchise. As part of the joke, Schlansky went on a long spiel about why Star Wars was superior to Star Trek. However, O’Brien didn’t realize that he was supposed to stop Schlansky, which meant that Schlansky had to keep going for as long as he could.

Schlansky had a lot to say about Star Wars–seven minutes worth of improvising, in fact. In the early part of the video, Schlansky argues Star Wars‘ connections to mythological storytelling and universal themes make it easier to connect to than Star Trek. O’Brien almost looked like he was about to fall asleep as Schlansky shifted gears to talk about the music of Star Wars, which he described as “grounded in 19th century romantic music.”

From there, Schlansky transitioned to a talk about broader issues of art, painting, and photographs before bringing it back to Star Wars by comparing the film to Rocky. When Schlansky finally finished, O’Brien jokingly fired him before telling him that it was “an incredible performance.”

What did you think about Jordan Schlansky’s “Masterpiece”? Share your comments below. They don’t have to be seven minutes long.
