Ever wonder what might happen if Conan O’Brien beefed up and fought his NBC oppressors, not in the courtroom, but with the sword of Crom – living up to his barbarian namesake?
Artist Buko, via Threadless, has put together a great design of Conan… as a Barbarian. In the print the comedian is decked out in a gold ringlets as well as other jewelry, and brandishing the Sword of Crom.
The piece is available to order as either a t-shirt or wall print.
Check out Buko’s design and see what our Conan looks like:
Despite how we might feel about Conan’s unfortunate dismissal from NBC, it’s becoming apparent that the comedian’s exodus from the Tonight Show, regrettable as it was, may actually be helping to build a passionate and dedicated following – a fan base that his stint at the Tonight Show failed to capture. Conan is carrying a lot of momentum during his break from the television spotlight – paving the way for the comedian as, not just a hot television property, but also cementing O’Brien as a cultural icon.
For now, Conan will continue to entertain on his Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television Tour. Though, secretly, we’re holding out hope for the possibility that O’Brien will replace Jason Momoa in Marcus Nispel’s Conan the Barbarian remake.
Will you be rocking a Coco The Barbarian shirt? Think you’ll be checking out O’Brien’s tour?
O’Brien’s Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television Tour kicks off next month.
