The blood tube “hurts the illusion a little bit,” Conan admits
It's unclear why Conan O'Brien continues to bring stuntman Steven Ho back to his Burbank Warner Bros. studio — each time the former “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle” actor shows up, someone gets hurt. Or at least a crisp white shirt gets ruined.
This time it was O'Brien's clothes being damaged beyond dry-cleaning repair.
After the host took a collapsable samurai sword to the gut, a fake bloody mess — courtesy of some Hollywood magic and a blood tube — painted the TBS show stage red.
“It's doesn't hurt too much, there's a little bit of pain with it,” Ho admitted before thrusting the sword into O'Brien's breadbasket. “If you move off the pad … it's going to puncture you.”
“But then no one would come to my rescue because blood would shoot out, you would think the effect is going perfectly and I would die,” O'Brien worried.
To which Ho replied, “Possibly.”
Previously in the show, Ho had “kicked” out O'Brien's “teeth.” It was all disgusting.
