Conan O’Brien is a bit of a novice when it comes to dating apps but they do fascinate him, and that’s why he enlisted the help of comedian Billy Eichner to show him just how Grindr works.
The Late Night with Conan O’Brien host has previously used the popular dating app Tinder (with Dave Franco’s help), but now he wanted to know what the difference between the two apps was, and Eichner came to the rescue.
“Grindr is for basically gay guys not pretending it’s for anything other than meeting up to have sex,” Eichner tells O’Brien, who then happily reveals that there have been times when he has been attracted to men.
O’Brien then goes on to create a profile for himself, with a very inventive username of “FreckleF***er.” Then comes the photo, which O’Brien describes as “horrifying” and we don’t disagree — although we did laugh at his multiple poses.
O’Brien and Eichner take things to the next level as they have fun creating messages to send to men that they find attractive, which include, “Hey, I like your airplane. Are you circumcised?” and “Hey, what’s up? You want to get plowed by a rich ginger?”
The end result is crazier than you would expect. Picture a “special customized Grindr van” complete with pictures of Liza Minnelli and Cher, strobe lights and a bowl of condoms, which the two funnymen use as their transportation to meet up with O’Brien’s match, a man named Anthony. Hilarity ensues, but don’t take our word for it — watch the video below.
