Shaved and shorn or scruffy and... sexy? How do you prefer your Conan? I like mine with a dose of Will Ferrell!
Ferrell drew a line in the sand the other day when he said about Conan O'Brien's beard, "That thing's a huge mistake and I'm going to come there and fix it myself...Whether you like it or not, I'm going to shave your beard."
He added, "Circle the date [May 2] on your calendar because I am circling your face like a vulture who eats hair ... I am serious, beardly serious."
The stage was magically transformed into a barbershop, and after a bracing gulp of Barbicide (you know, the blue stuff combs soak in?), Ferrell got to work.
The end result clearly made Ferrell pleased, though Conan seemed less convinced.
The nitty gritty:
I'm sure you're dying to know the beauty tool details, and I have them!
- The blade Ferrell prefers is called "Excalibeard". This cutting edge implement takes advantage of the green beauty movement: it's "not battery operated. It runs on pure rightousness."
- The technique used was very zen. Ferrell instructed Conan to "just sit back and let the blade flow over you." Also observed, a novel circular shavig motion.
Does Will Ferrell have a legitimate side job here? Do you have a friend, hubby, bf, or coworker sporting some unpleasant facial hair? Are you inspired to take matter into your own hands, now? Is your man ready to "feel the steel"?
Watch the shave go down:
Editor's Note: No comedians were harmed during this event. A professional came in and "tidied up" Conan's new look, and luckily Will Farrell came with a nice haircut (whew).
