There isn’t much of an introduction from me today, so let’s get straight into this tweet from the Men In Blazers twitter account:
A mural in Buenos Aires featuring Messi, The Pope and...Conan O'Brien. Argentina still drunk from the World Cup. pic.twitter.com/WGst9vabWx— Men in Blazers (@MenInBlazers) January 8, 2024
I have no idea what to make of this. That’s Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Argentina-born Pope Francis.
And in the middle with his arms around their shoulders? That’s TV legend Conan O’Brien, wearing one of his favourite leather jackets.
The words on the mural translate to: “The sacred sons of Argentina”.
According to the Conan O’Brien reddit, the mural is on Gorriti ave in Buenos Aires.
And we know from Conan O’Brien’s twitter account that he visited Argentina not too long ago.
Trying to enjoy myself in Buenos Aires, and THIS guy shows up. pic.twitter.com/IaM1bc6DlS— Conan O'Brien (@ConanOBrien) November 15, 2023
I’m not quite sure how it all connects yet, but it could be related to this new travel show that Conan O’Brien is doing. I’m sure one of the guests on Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend is from Argentina. I must’ve listened to it.
But why Conan? On this mural? Not Juan Martin del Potro?
Not sure, and I don’t care that much.
Any mural with Conan O’Brien on it is one I can get behind.
And guess what else! Conan’s gonna be on the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
It’s a good time to be Conan O’Brien.
