Conan O’Brien recently visited YouTube Space, the video giant’s headquarters for virtual reality technology, to check out the future in gaming and mind-altering experiences.
“I am very interested in what this means for pornography,” the host said, adding that the green screen VR studio represents “the latest in technology, clearly, which involves I think just green paper. You’ve now achieved what weather channels figured out over 40 years ago.” After strapping on a VR headset, O’Brien is transported to outer space. The host used a controller to draw a caricature of himself then attempted to hump the moon.
“This is going to put the marijuana industry out of business,” O’Brien said of the lifelike experience. “This is how Woody Harrelson feels all the time.” The VR experience then took O’Brien to more mundane human simulations of “office worker” and “gourmet chef” before dropping him off in a gym to box the emotionally dead “Ugly Joe” in the ring.
