Paul Rudd tricks Conan AGAIN with misleading 'Ant-Man' clip

Paul Rudd Tricks Conan AGAIN With Misleading 'Ant-Man' Clip

As you probably already know, Paul Rudd has been shamelessly tricking Conan O'Brien for years by showing the same clip from the 1988 "E.T." rip-off "Mack and Me" when he comes on the show to promote a new movie. (Video via DreamWorks Distribution / "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy")

You know the one ...

"Eric, stop!" (Video via Orion Pictures / "Mac and Me")

So, when Paul came on the show to promote "Ant-Man" Thursday, Conan thought the actor was going to make it up to him with an exclusive look at the new flick.

"Down here!" (Video via TBS / "Conan")

Oh boy, Paulie's at it again, folks.

Conan tried to give him one more chance to show an actual "Ant-Man" clip, but you can probably guess how that went. Poor, poor Conan.

"So, as you can see, it doesn't go according to plan, and I have a lot to learn," said Paul Rudd.

We'll admit it — Paul pulling a fast one on Conan once again was pretty hilarious.

But Mediaite was more surprised than amused by the bit.

The outlet was shocked that Marvel was OK with letting the actor appear on the show without sharing actual footage from its newest movie.

But we're guessing Marvel isn't too worried about missing one promotion opportunity.

"Ant-Man" is winning big so far, with critics dubbing the flick "a big treat," "a shrunken summer spectacular" and even "Marvel's best superhero movie yet." Yeah, wow.

So we guess we can forgive you this time, Paul.

But you should probably show Conan a real clip next time, or he might find a way to finally get you back!
