Tom Brady and Dwight Freeney to battle on Conan’s ‘Clueless Gamer’
A little pre Super Bowl sportsmanship
If you are watching Conan tonight, you will see NFL stars from both the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots. The two teams will send representitives for the latest installment in the show’s enormously popular “Clueless Gamer” series.
Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and LeGarrette Blount of the Patriots will face off against Dwight Freeney of the Falcons in “Clueless Gamer: Super Bowl Edition 3,” marking their only joint appearance before they take the field on Sunday for Super Bowl LI.
In addition, retired Seattle Seahawks legend Marshawn Lynch, a Clueless Gamer favorite, will once again join the festivities, and respected FOX Sports NFL reporter Erin Andrews will provide sideline commentary for the competition. Clueless Gamer: Super Bowl Edition 3 will be included in tonight’s episode of CONAN, which airs at 11 p.m. (ET/PT), only on TBS.
Hosted by Conan O’Brien, CONAN has become a leading late-night favorite among those in the video gamer community, who have helped turn the show’s Clueless Gamer segments into viral sensations through the Team Coco website and YouTube channel. Clueless Gamer features O’Brien and guests playing – or rather attempting to play – the hottest video games on the market.
For tonight’s Clueless Gamer installment, O’Brien will be joined by a total of five NFL Pro Bowlers, the most ever to appear on the series at one time, as they play For Honor, the newest game title from Ubisoft. Last year, Clueless Gamer: Super Bowl Edition 2 featured eventual Super Bowl MVP Von Miller and all pro Josh Norman. The now-annual tradition of Super Bowl-related installments began in 2015s with a matchup between Lynch and Gronkowski that has since draw 17 million online video views.
CONAN airs Monday-Thursday at 11 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS. The show is produced by Conaco LLC, with Jeff Ross serving as executive producer
