ClickHole Gets Even Weirder With Help From Conan O’Brien
ClickHole is the Onion’s absurdist parody of websites like BuzzFeed. (Not What’s Trending, though. We’d never clickbait you with headlines about TOPLESS WOMEN that are actually about France’s burkini bans.) Their latest video is a parody of pregnancy announcement videos, in which a woman tells her husband she’s pregnant while Conan O’Brien, host of TBS’s late night show Conan as well as a former host of the Tonight Show, pours milk down a sink.
Appropriately, the title of the video is “Watch A Woman Tell Her Husband She’s Pregnant While Conan O’Brien Pours Good Milk Down The Sink.”
The video starts with a woman announcing to the camera that she’s pregnant and that her husband doesn’t know, and she’s taping herself telling him. After the actual announcement, Conan steps into view, walks to the sink with unopened milk, and begins pouring it down the sink. He occasionally remarks about how fresh the milk is, with memorable comments like, “This milk is really fresh” and, “this fresh, good milk belongs in the sewer and I’m gonna put it there.” Conan steps out of view and the attention shifts back to the couple before Conan comes back with even bigger unopened milk jugs.
This fits the formula of ClickHole, which specializes in parodying things in new, weird ways, like when they covered Shawshank Redemption or when they created an exceptionally short, bizarre supercut.
What do you think? Would you allow Conan to pour milk down your sink? Let us know in the comments or @WhatsTrending on Twitter!
