Conan O’Brien knows that today’s sophisticated viewers demand nifty special effects, so the late-night host “hired” a digital effects team to work some CGI magic on ‘Conan.’ The team’s abilities, however, left much to be desired.
O’Brien explains that the team, which is called ‘Digital Sizzle,’ has worked on such (fake) films as ‘Shark Fraternity’ and ‘Dragon Puncher IV: Return to Karate Castle.’ Despite their puffed-up resume, they produce effects that are cartoonish at best.
O’Brien and sidekick Andy Richter watch in disbelief as a poorly-rendered U.F.O. disintegrates the coffee mug on O’Brien’s desk. Then, Richter manages a look of disgust as a far-from-believable T-Rex bites his head off.
