“I’ll cross the damned bridge, if I have to…I’ll get there…” ~ Conan O’Brien

It’s a dangerous job out there, being a bike messenger—and those who bravely bike the city streets of New York City, are simply fearless.

Watch what happens when Conan O’Brien decides to join these fine folks for a day’s adventure as a NYC bike messenger.

A classic clip from 1997, and still enough to elicit a guaranteed belly laugh. Sadly, and in typical Conan fashion—he never quite fit  that messenger ‘mold.’

Thankfully, he’s moved on since from this fleeting whim—leaving this job, to the real experts!


P.S. What do you call a messenger that just broke up with his girlfriend? Homeless.

Budum bum. (ack…sorry, I couldn’t help it!)
