Ryan Seacrest: The Nacho Years

I time-shifted Friday's Tonight Show to yesterday evening, and boy am I glad I did. First of all, Conan not only addresses the Mario Bros. meme, but he hops around in front of a fully animated Mario Bros. backdrop. (Video after the jump.) Then Ryan Seacrest came out, and Conan launched soon thereafter into the topic of Ryan's adolescent obesity, replete with middle-school class picture. A friend of mine thinks he looks like Rue McClanahan in it.

Ryan explained that the extra heft was probably due to the fact that he'd make a sheet of nachos every single day after school, then proceed to devour them while watching Oprah. (I'd actually heard this anecdote before, but hearing it from Seacrest's own lips was like the Fat Seacrest 3-D IMAX experience.) Impressively, despite leading him down this corridor of cheddar-and-jalapeno covered shame, Conan comes away seeming like the nice, popular guy in high school willing to give the awkward, sexually-confused chubby kid in the chorus of Guys and Dolls a chance. Riveting television.
