SHARE Mine That Bird helps Conan O’Brien waste NBC’s money

In his second-to-last show on NBC, Conan O’Brien continued his quest to spend all of the network’s money with the help of Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird.

Or a horse stand-in, as many have pointed out. Look, if I could identify horses by sight, I wouldn’t be stuck in this dead-end newspaper job.

The red-haired one said the horse, which was wearing a mink snuggie, was watching restricted Super Bowl coverage — all at a cost of $4.8 million to his least favorite network.

But, sharp eyes on the internet have pointed out that the horse was actually looking at a USFL game.

I’m not so sure Mine That Bird knew the difference. Or the horse pretending to be Mine That Bird. Whatever.

Tremendous equine acting, however.

Coco’s last show is tonight. Stay strong, America.
