Conan Is The Super Bowl MVP With This Cam Newton Parody

Pressers can be rough.

Team Coco just won the big game.

A lot has been made about Cam Newton's sullen post-Super Bowl press conference, but, however you feel, this is even worse. In an ill-fated attempt to make a wisecrack about the NFL star's demeanor, Conan O'Brien made one of the worst jokes of his career, saying, "Cam Newton? More like Fig Newton." 

Just like real-life Fig Newtons, that left a bad taste in everyone's mouth.

"Why'd you think calling Cam Newton a cookie was going to get laughs?" asked one reporter at the post-joke press conference.

"I don't know, bro," said Conan.

The TV host eventually had enough and walked out on the presser. It was a low point for O'Brien, but clearly the best thing to come out of the Super Bowl

(Unless you ask Peyton Manning, who thinks the best things were Budweiser and Papa Johns.)
