CoCo soaps up and hoses down in 'Conan' promo

Leave it to Conan O'Brien to get his fans worked into a lather in anticipation of the premiere of his new TBS late night show, "Conan."

In a hilarious new promo that references '80s hair bands and Paris Hilton's infamous Carl's Jr. hamburger ad, O'Brien is seen sexily washing his desk – and himself – to the tune of Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar on Me."

The 30-second clip opens with O'Brien, 47, standing in front of his desk and dunking a sponge into a bucket of water before looking seductively over his shoulder and vamping it up. Besides blowing suds naughtily at the camera, he soaps himself up and hoses himself down, writhes around on his desk, bites a chunk out of the sponge, and whips his wet hair around in slow motion.

Will O'Brien make as big a splash when his revamped talk show finally hits the airwaves later this fall? The world will find out on November 8.

      Me too. Conan is hilarious! I used to like Jay Leno, but he showed his true colors last year. He's a greedy back-stabber who clearly puts his own selfish motives ahead of anything class or accountability. Good Luck Conan!! We love you!!!

      Conan blows. He is completely unfunny. He forced NBC's hand with regards to the tonight show and then whined when his ratings sucked and they brought back Leno. He forced out Leno, the show's ratings tanked, he refused to let the show be moved back a half hour, then he played the martyr when the network whose hand he forced did the right thing and canned his unfunny butt. You suck Conan! Thats why your lame a$$ is now on TBS.

    I like Conan, but I felt Jay got a bad rap last fall. If you remember Jay's announcement, it was clear that Conan had tried to procure the Tonight Show by forcing Jay into retirement. Although I do like Conan's comedy, it's more appropriate for a later time slot, and to be frank, he got what was coming. Jay wasn't ready to leave, and yes, he can be a tad corny at times, but I believe he's a good man nevertheless. But to each their own.
