Just saw this interesting ad featuring Conan O’Brien in India. It’s not insanely funny, but it is beautifully shot and weird. It’s interesting that you can get these angles on India where everything is cloth and color – really the Orient – when the real India has a lot more plastic and exhaust in between. Conan is recently back on the air after a much publicized fight over the NBC late night chair with Jay Leno. Personally, I think Conan is much funnier, but it looks like he’ll be able to take an interesting run for it on the TBS cable channel. I don’t think his involvement with India or new markets like that goes much farther than this whimsical tour of the Orient.
