VIDEO: Conan Spoofs Sarah Palin Shooting Rudolph
From Alaskan caribou to Christmas icons, Sarah Palin has some explaining to do, according to Conan O'Brien.
The comedian revealed some rather shocking news Wednesday night on his TBS late-night show, Conan. "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was just on TV," he began. "They updated it to make the Rudolph story a little more contemporary." Conan then cut to footage from the beloved American classic movie, which was spliced with clips from the now-notorious episode of Sarah Palin's Alaska, in which the former governor was seen cocking and aiming a rifle on a hunting trip.
The clip ends with the animated reindeer falling, injured, on the ground before cutting to real footage of Palin saying, "It's a great feeling of accomplishment."
Conan is experiencing backlash from the joke, all right, but not from Palin's supporters. It seems that Coco is being attacked for being a copycat. Just two weeks ago, Jimmy Kimmel made a very similar joke on his late night show, Jimmy Kimmel Live. —KIMBERLY STEELE
