WATCH: Conan Flings Giant Bratwurst Over Chicago Bridge And It Is Beautiful
For every night that Conan O’Brien is in Chicago filming his late night talk show, he will launch something Chicago-related over the drawbridge of the State Street Bridge. (Somehow, every Chicago traffic and policing agency is surprisingly cool with this. Chicago is weird.) Tonight, he launches a ten-foot-long Bratwurst over an 80-foot gap. Tomorrow, he’ll probably tie Laurent Gras onto a weird machine made out of foie gras by Grant Achatz and have Graham Elliott Bowles fling it over the bridge.
“AMERICA IS STILL THE GREATEST NATION ON EARTH,” Conan declares, and we celebrated our freedoms by throwing things out our office windows as well.
