Humor: Conan O’Brien Debuts Funny New ‘Complete Waste of a GoPro’ Segment

GoPro cameras, or rather action cameras in general, are amazing little devices that have enabled people to capture everything from the exciting to the harrowing to the downright weird. But there’s something they don’t put on action cam packaging that they should. The question: “do you actually do anything exciting worthy of an action cam?”

For late night show host and comedian Conan O’Brien the answer is a definitive ‘No,’ and so he put the GoPros he supposedly got for Christmas (it feels a bit more like an advertising stunt to us) to use in the most mundane ways imaginable as part of a funny new segment called ‘Complete Waste of a GoPro.’

A coffee mug, a trombone slide and a sub sandwich were the items Conan decided to attach the action cams to, and if you can get past the fact that this feels a bit like a covert GoPro ad, the question the segment begs — namely, “how many people who buy these things actually go out and do exciting stuff with them?” — might just make you chuckle.
