Artist Creates Conan-Shaped Coffin As O’Brien Travels To Ghana For Latest ‘Conan Without Borders’ Special

Conan O’Brien is taking his show on the road once again.

For his latest “Conan Without Borders” special the lanky late-night host travels to the African nation of Ghana.

As always, the 56-year-old funnyman mingles with locals and takes a deep dive into the country’s unique culture. In the new special he meets with some of Ghana’s talented artists.

In fact, O’Brien enlists a wood-carving artist to make him something very special: a customized coffin bearing his likeness.

The video above demonstrates the artist at work, chipping away with a chisel until all that’s left is a giant Conan-shaped coffin that absolutely tickles the comedian when he first lays eyes on it for the first time.

“You got the face right,” he quips.

That wasn’t O’Brien’s only exposure to local artisans. In another segment of the show, he meets a painter who specializes in doing his own versions of movie posters, leading O’Brien to hire him to create some posters for faux movies featuring him and “Conan” sidekick Andy Richter that must be seen to be believed.
