When talk show host Conan O’Brien celebrated the 10th anniversary of his NBC show “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” he got a surprise visitor in the form of Will Ferrell dressed as a leprechaun.
Throughout the segment, Ferrell demanded to hear Irish music, which he then used to dance seductively for Conan.
Ferrell was just months away from being thrown into massive mainstream success thanks to films like “Old School,” and “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.”
His Conan appearance, during which he dressed as a leprechaun male stripper, would prove to be one of his most famous late night appearances. Over a decade after he shook his butt for Conan’s Irish face the late night clip still appears on listicles devoted to Ferrell’s brilliance.
