In a video mash-up segment aired Tuesday night called “If They Melded,” TBS late night talk show host Conan O’Brien merged Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) into a single being.
Correction: A single, terrifying being.
Several other mash-up victims included celebutante Kris Jener and the Dalai Lama, the animated characters Peter Griffin and He-Man, and finally, Conan and loyal co-host Andy Richter.
This video is from “Conan,” aired Tuesday, June 11, 2013.
