Appearing on TBS’s Conan on Wednesday night, all five of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s sons attempted to humanize their father by relaying family anecdotes and personal traits most people wouldn’t realize about the former Massachusetts governor.

For instance: Craig Romney revealed that his dad became so obsessed with a Will Ferrell chant from Saturday Night Live that for “five years,” whenever someone would say the words “taco” or “burrito” in his presence, he’d repeat the rest of Ferrell’s lines.

The full chant goes: “Taco! Burrito! What’s coming out of your Speedo?”

“Any time you mention that word, taco or burrito, you knew my dad would chime in,” Craig said.

This video was broadcast on TBS’s Conan on Wednesday, June 20, 2012.
