Shaq Visits Conan's Tiny Set, Joel McHale Stops By With A Gift

Last night on Conan, Conan O’Brien and his TBS talk show sidekick Andy got a taste of their own medicine. After numerous segments a couple weeks back in which puppies were brought up on stage to represent Conan and Andy on a tiny, puppy-sized set, Conan vowed that they’d shoot a whole show on the mini-set. Last night was the night. It was also a night full of tall guests, including Shaquille O’Neal, and Community’s Joel McHale.

The tiny set yielded strange results, including the site of Shaq looking even bigger than he normally does as he squatted down on the mini chair. Check out the photos below...


And then there was the brief appearance by Joel McHale, who came out onto the set in all of his tall glory, and, with the hope of the bit going viral, left a little present for Conan, which seemed to take on a life of its own after Conan tossed it aside...

Also, great plug for Community. Very Soup like, Mr. McHale!

And, since we brought it up, here’s Conan explaining the puppy set situation, complete with adorable (possibly terrified) puppies.

The mini-set was funny, but everyone seemed uncomfortable. Let’s hope things get back to normal size for tonight’s episode.

Conan airs on weeknights at 11:00 p.m. on TBS.
