In his time as a late night TV host, Conan O’Brien has always gotten a laugh out of the questionable “special effects” his shows have employed. When you’re running a talk show, you just don’t really have a budget for effects professionals, which was made very clear in this sketch that got cut from “Conan” before it aired.

The kingdom of Westeros is looking for its next king, and according to a raven (obviously attached to puppet strings) that arrives for Andy Richter, he has a legitimate claim to the throne. Successive ravens muddy the waters a bit, though, as Andy must apparently wire a pile of gold coins to a suspicious address in order to claim the throne. Conan convinces Andy that the offer is a scam, and so Andy does not depart for Westeros to become king.

As it turns out, the offer was legitimate, but given how low-budget this edition of Westeros looks, it’s probably better that Andy didn’t go.
