Conan O'Brien just wanted to point out how sad Cam Newton was during the Super Bowl postgame interviews. Newton was definitely distraught, answering questions with just a few words until he abruptly left. It was heartbreaking, but Conan still wanted to joke about it.
But he went with a Fig Newton joke.
What transpired after was a spectacular parody of Newton's interview, only now it was Conan apologizing for the bad joke wearing practically the same hoodie. Conan didn't say much either and stormed out of his TBS press conference without saying whether TBS would be trading him.
Maybe if the Panthers win next time, Conan can show Cam how to do his famous string dance for touchdown celebrations.
