WATCH: Conan Tries to Make New Friends in Funny Cuba Episode


Unless you managed to completely avoid the Internet last month, you probably know Conan O'Brien took his TBS show to Cuba over Presidents' Day weekend.

And Wednesday night, we finally got to witness the episode he filmed over four days in Havana.

When he first arrived, Conan just had to explore the city and try to make some new friends. Key word here: try.

"Yo soy Conan! Mi nombre es Conan. Conan O'Brien!" said Conan O'Brien. "I was a little worried my Spanish wouldn't be good enough here in Cuba, but now I think I'll be okay."

Conan did his best to fit in with ferocious dogs, some elderly women and two very confused grocery store employees.

But his mediocre Spanish and keen ability to upset the country's canines made it a little difficult, and it was, in true Conan fashion, very silly.

As a writer for Uproxx notes, "He isn't changing much of his attitude to adjust to the nations customs."

Conan told CNN before the episode aired he wasn't trying to insult Cuba in any way.

"I did not want this, in any way, to be snarky or me being cutting about their culture. I wanted to go and, in a lot of my remote segments, the joke is on me, I'm the fish out of water. And that's really the spirit that I wanted to bring to it."

The Conan in Cuba episode marked the first time in more than 50 years that an American television show had been filmed in Cuba. And we'd say it was definitely a success.
