Conan O’Brien Rents A Japanese Family To Replace His Own

Conan O’Brien is looking for an upgrade.

The “Conan” host did something unfathomable in North America: he rented a family. O’Brien, 55, travelled across the planet for his new special “Conan Without Borders: Japan”.

Two days into his journey O’Brien was already feeling homesick. He decided to meet with rental Family Agent Ishii Yuichi, apparently a real thing you can do in Japan.

O’Brien was given photos and descriptions of potential family members such as a temporary wife and son. When the professional informed him he can hold hands and hug the rented wife but “no kissing,” Conan responded, “just like my current marriage.”

Finally, O’Brien met his new family: a wife, a daughter and a father. O’Brien requested his rented family laugh at all his jokes, a luxury he no longer experiences with his own kids. He also asked his new father to apologize for a yelling incident in the 1970s involving cream corned and an episode of “The Love Boat”.

O’Brien eventually hit the town with his new family to explore Tokyo. What a life.
