Conan O'Brien reviews Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, gives us his impressions of Mario and gang in Clueless Gamer segment

Posted by Cheng Kai 'KarbyP' Sim • June 12, 2014 at 8:08 a.m. PDT

On an episode of TBS's Conan this week, Conan O'Brien checks out Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, without any prior knowledge of what the game is about -- and the results are decidedly hilarious.

"This is probably the most exciting Clueless Gamer I've ever done," says Conan at the beginning of the segment.

"Today I am going to review Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. This game is still in development. They don't even have a cover for the game yet, so I made one."

In the span of this nine-minute-long clip, Conan not only does an impression of Mario, but also shares his impressions on the game's characters, many of whom he's seeing for the first time.

"You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to be the Villager because he looks like one of those puppets in a horror movie who comes to life and murders everyone. Look at his eyes."

Even Conan knows that to stare into the eyes of Villager is to stare into the gaping maw of madness and fury.

So, who actually knew the 2nd president of the US without looking. I'm guessing Alexander Hamilton, but, I guess it's bad enough that I have to guess without knowing 100%.

I'm a big fan of Conan and I kinda wish his box art came with the official release.

Hopefully people who don't watch Conan who see this will know right away (from his not knowing what Zelda is) that he never plays video games willingly, and that's the whole point of these bits.

...that said, why does Conan get a dev kit, I spent 3 hours in line to play one two minute match at a Best Buy that was over an hour away. :(

The segment is labeled Clueless Gamer, and they always make it clear that Conan is a silly old man that doesn't play video games as a hobby. I'd find it hard to believe that someone that doesn't watch his show would confuse him as an avid gamer, heh.

And Conan gets a dev kit because he's got a TV show whose key demographic are the same people that would be playing this game (or games in general for that matter). Get a TV show and you'll be showered with dev kits too!

George Washington was the first you see, he once chopped down a cherry tree...
...and the one in charge it's plain to see is Clinton, first name Hillary.

I've seen people (on other sites) complain about his other Clueless Gamer segments, clearly missing the joke. It's hard to have faith in the internet.

LMFAO!

Technically George Washington wasn't the first president.

Anyway, this was hilarious.

YES! I'm so glad Conan reviewed a Nintendo game, especially Smash Bros. Hilarious episode, I always wanted to know what Conan thinks when he sees each of Nintendo's mascots.

I don't care what anyone says, I still think Conan is an advid closet gamer and he's just playing up a act as a 'clueless' gamer.

For the record, nobody cares about John Adams.

Quick thought experiment: Which is more useful in day to day life?

1) Being aware of what games your children are playing
2) Being able to list American Presidents in chronological order.

Think carefully about the conversations you are likely to have. Which is going to come up during your average day.

Do you have kids? Do you expect to be involved in their lives if/when you do? Or will you sit them down in front of random-game-X and pretend they don't exist for hours at a time?

How likely do you think your chances of being on Jeopardy are? Can you think of any other use for knowing the presidents? Is "You're a bad 'Mercan if you don't know the first five" really a good argument?

I'm taking this way too seriously :3

That was phenomenally entertaining.

Laughed my @ss off! Those gamer dudes were so lucky....Playing the game in a comfortable setting,without crowds or long lines.Too bad Conan will fire their asses for their lack of American cultural knowledge. XD

SnakeX said on June 12, 2014 at 9:53 p.m.

Wellllll yeah, I guess I shouldn't be too surprised that there's always at least a handful of dinguses out there that completely miss the point. Certain people just can't let themselves enjoy some things. Their loss!

SnakeX said on June 12, 2014 at 10:04 p.m.

He's definitely not an avid gamer, but it's true that he plays up the clueless bit to an extent. The man recognizes the classic stuff though and has kids himself, so he's not completely shut out from gaming culture either. After all, these Clueless Gamer segments were his idea; as I mentioned before, he knows a large portion of the people that watch and attend his show fall into the demographic of people that would be playing video games. Not to mention that he definitely understands the impact gaming has on modern day culture. Gotta give the people what they want!

But as for him being the type of person to sit down and playing a game or two for an extended period of time? Nah. That's not him.
