Conan Goes To India In Hilarious New AmEx Commercial (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Tonight finally marks the debut of Conan O'Brien's much-hyped new TBS talk show. But in addition to the generous promotional duties O'Brien has performed on behalf of the show, he also took the time to shoot a promotional spot as his new role as a spokesman for American Express.

The credit card company adds O'Brien to their accomplished roster of stars with whom they have teamed up, such as Martin Scorsese, Jerry Seinfeld and Tina Fey. AmEx also sponsored O'Brien's wildly successful "Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television" tour last summer.

In the spot, O'Brien travels to Mumbai, India, to secure exactly the right fabric for a very special purpose. While there, he joins in the Indian way of life as only O'Brien can. Check out the extended commercial below.
