Conan O’Brien in Finland
Posted by George on March 10th, 2006

Conan O'Brien and Tarja HalonenTonight’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien will focus on Conan’s trip to Finland, where he is hugely popular due to the fact that he resemble President Tarja Halonen. Conan tells the Associated Press about his trip in a phone interview:

The whole experience was surreal. It was a fevered dream. (David) Hasselhoff is big in Germany, but I’m the king of Finland.

When you see a telephoto lens shot taken from some bushes by a paparazzi, what you’re used to seeing is Brad Pitt making out with Angelina Jolie or Michael Jackson being rushed through a mall in a weird disguise. But the shots of me were of this very pale guy staring sadly at the Baltic Sea.

I was treated with the same dignity and gravitas as Nelson Mandela meeting with Mother Teresa. My feeling was, `Is this really happening?’

You can bet if anything ever happen to President Halonen, Conan will be called upon to replace the president secretly with no one in the country finding out, just like the movie Moon Over Parador.
