Conan O’Brien returned to a “cheap Marriott conference room” for a Super Bowl 50 edition of “Clueless Gamer,” his popular late-night skit in which guests are filmed playing a video game. Josh Norman of the Carolina Panthers and Von Miller of the Denver Broncos, who face each other on Sunday, faced “Doom” with hilarious results.
During blood-splattering action, Conan recoils and groans as the players move through the game. “Sometimes when you sack somebody, do they just blow up?” Conan asked Miller. “Yeah, Tom Brady, he blew up,” the linebacker replied.
When a hologram appears in the game, Conan asks Miller how he knew what that was.
“I mean, I’d seen Tupac at Coachella,” Miller said.
After a cool-down moment with some wine, the players are joined by “Clueless Gamer” vet Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks, who famously paired up last year with Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots on “Mortal Kombat X.”
Lynch, who is from the Bay Area, made sure to let Conan know that if he came through Oakland during his visit that his “street pass is accepted.”
An excited Conan said, “Really? I’ve got street cred in Oakland?!”
“Nahhhh. I was just saying that,” Lynch replied.
