This is one of the reasons I love Conan O’Brien and team.
They aren’t afraid to be silly or make fools of themselves but they also aren’t afraid to call people out for whatever reason. This back-and-forth exchange between the two comedians reminded me of a feud Conan had with another public figure and it makes me hopeful that my favorite redhead (besides Ron Weasley) will invite Da Peng to his show like he did Cory Booker. Although, this time it may be difficult since Da Peng is overseas and there’s the whole issue of the language barrier.
This whole situation also reminded me that we don’t need to take ourselves so seriously sometimes. Ripping off someone else’s entire opening sequence could have easily led to talks of copyright issues and plagiarism but Conan just took it all in stride and forgave Da Peng and gave them an original opening sequence for him to use if he chooses.
Now, how nice is that?
