Conan O’Brien Plays With Nerds

Mark Warbington forwarded me a video clip from Late Night with Conan O’Brien, which features Conan (sans Barbarian) visiting the Lucasfilm complex on the Presidio in San Francisco. Hilarity ensues as Conan talks with Lucasfilm and Industrial Light and Magic employees and he gets to try out the motion capture system as he portrays a digital C-3PO. In the end, he leads two Star Wars nerds to freedom!
