Seeing Tim Tebow's 80-yard, game winning touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas was electrifying and one that Broncos fans will never forget. Seeing it live was exciting, but seeing the same play recreated with peanuts rather than football players is where it really comes to life. Okay, maybe not, but it is definitely funnier this way.
Conan O'Brien recreated the monumental winning touchdown play with his "Peanut Players" as substitutes for actual Broncos not just because it's funny, but because it's cheaper than using NFL footage. "It was an amazing final play and I really wanted to show it to you tonight," O'Brien told his "Conan" audience. "But if I did show it, the NFL would charge me thousands and thousands of dollars. It's really expensive. So, we were able to recreate the thrilling final moments with the help of our Conan Peanut Players."
The entire sequence is recreated with peanut shells on a miniature football field, the Tebow peanut Tebows in thanks for the scoring play, and the Pittsburgh Steelers get a surprise at the end of the video that was not part of the original game -- or, at least it wasn't a televised part.
