The last 36 hours of human life have been devoted to Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, a man whose post-game interview launched a debate about a black man’s right to be confident without being labeled a ‘thug’ and also about a billion memes.
Guess which one Conan tackled?
On Monday’s episode, Conan O’Brien discussed the value of sportsmanship and America’s shifty response to sports stars who go too far in either direction on the “be a boring team player or an interesting individual” scale by inserting Richard Sherman into an ad for organic skin care. You know, as Conan does. Now it’s less about being “classy” and more about Tarocco Orange Eucalyptus & Sage Refreshing Body Mist.
(Maybe that’s the argument we should be having, anyway.)
