Will Ferrell did a little manscaping last night on Conan when he literally shaved off Conan O’Brien’s “red mistake” on air! Sounds like the beardpocalypse was in the making since Conan was aware of the grooming segment ahead of time.
Considering Will mentioned he had only previously shaved dogs before, he didn’t do too shabby! According to PopEater, Will took on the role of barber as he coiffed the primped the host. Despite a huge news weekend between the Royal Wedding and Osama bin Laden, according to Will, there was nothing more important than this manscaping session!
Will joked, “There is nothing else going on in this country other than the fervor to shave that beard.” So yes, all of the buzz on the street was indeed about Conan’s soon-to-be defunct whiskers. He added, “I turned on the television last night to see if people were talking about it…There were people celebrating at the White House. There were people celebrating in Times Square. Chanting ‘U.S.A.! Shave the beard!'”
