In Dallas, Conan O’Brien Becomes A Goofy, Creepy Mary Kay Beauty Consultant (Video)

TBS/Conan O'Brien
Is that a clown? The Joker? No, it's Conan O'Brien, sampling the Mary Kay products while visiting Dallas.

Conan O’Brien wraps up his Dallas adventures tonight. He’s been in town all week, taping his TBS talk show from the Majestic Theatre. Tonight’s guests are Charles Barkley and Lyle Lovett.

Earlier this week, O’Brien joked about big hair, Whataburger and licked Big Tex’s boots, then declaring: “Tastes like freedom!” Then Mavericks Star Dirk Nowitzki give O’Brien a Texas citizenship test.

On Tuesday night, O’Brien became a Mary Kay consultant.

O’Brien’s YouTube page declares: “Mary Kay is perhaps the most trusted name in female beauty, so of course Conan is a natural choice to sell their products.”

It is a hilarious segment. O’Brien puts on tons of lipstick – and resembles a clown. Or maybe the Joker. Then he gets into a Mary Kay pink SUV to head over to a house to try to sell Mary Kay products to a room filled with strangers.
