Conan Rents A Family In Japan

Conan Rents A Family In Japan


Loneliness is a problem in modern Japan. In fact, there are companies throughout Japan that provide fake families for people who are lonely. I’m not making this up. And I thought, why don’t I get a fake family while I’m here, in Tokyo? I have now been in Japan for two days. Mm hmm. And I am very lonely. (laughing) I have two children who show me very little respect. Oh. And I have a wife who is tired of my jokes. (laughing) My father and I get along pretty well, but I honestly think I could do better. I would like a new father that would apologize for some things that happened between us in the 1970’s. Specifically, when he lost his temper in the kitchen because I spilled a bowl of creamed corn. And then he didn’t let me watch The Love Boat that night. And I’m told it was a very good episode. Yeah. Bea Arthur was on it from the Golden Girls. She’s a divorcee who meets a man who she’s interesting in and it turns out that he’s a scam artist. He’s played by Harvey Korman. Quick question. The wife, what are the boundaries with this woman that I choose? Oh, hug and shake the hands, but no kissing? So, just like my current marriage? Wife?
Yes. She looks very beautiful. Thank you. May I ask how old she is? Oh, 48? Okay. It is close to my own age. Mm hmm. So, this is a no. (laughing) Yes, I’m from Los Angeles, and a man my age is required by law to marry a woman who’s 25. This is a possible son. How old is he? 35?
(laughing) I don’t have a, I could not have a son who is 35. (laughing)
Sorry. No, he’s too old to be my son, and also I’m worried my fake son is gonna run away with my fake wife. Who is this? How old is she? That’s very good. I think she has a good sense of humor. Do you have any father candidates? Oh my god. I feel like I’ve already disappointed him. Oh. Hey wait a minute, now we’re talking. Look at him, he looks pleasant. Good guy? Square, I like that. My father, my wife, and my daughter. And they will be my family while I’m in Japan? Mm hm. If I’m really enjoying my fake family, what’s the maximum amount of time I can retain their services? Three years? I could have them for three years? You don’t need to check with her, she’s 12! (laughing) My current family won’t give me three more years. Also, one more question. Is it possible for me to rent someone who could pretend to be a bully who was mean to me in high school and I can beat the shit out of him? You’re the most impressive person I’ve met in my entire life. (laughing) I bow to you, I honor you. Okay, I swear to god this is real. I left Family Romance about an hour and 20 minutes ago. I am back in my hotel room in Tokyo, and I have a family. This is incredible. The wife, my daughter. I am now your father. And she thinks I’m the coolest dad in the world. Okay, yeah. Another thing that’s important to me is that I am very funny. When I tell a joke, I would like it if you all really laughed and thought it was funny. Could you explain to them? Could you do that? Could you laugh if I tell a joke? Okay let me ask you a question. Do you guys like ramen? Yes we do. Not me, I like my men cooked. Please tell them to laugh. (laughing) This is so much better. So you’re all down for the tree year deal, three years? (laughing) Not everything’s a joke. (laughing) Okay, I’m worried now that if I tell her, oh I just came back from the doctor and I only have a year to live. (laughing) Awful. Dad, nice to meet you. How are you? Fine, thank you. Maybe you can begin by apologizing. Just say I was wrong to yell at you in the 70’s. I was wrong in the 70’s. You were wrong in the 70’s, right. Yeah, 1978 when I spilled the creamed corn, you say I was wrong, I apologize. I am sorry about the creamed corn. (laughing) Dad, come here. Come on. That’s fantastic. It would mean a lot to me if you said I like you more than your brothers. I like you more than your brothers. Yes, I’m the best one, right? Yes of course. You are my favorite son. Yes! Again hugging, I like the hugging. I’ve now hugged you more than I’ve hugged my real father. You guys wanna go see Tokyo? Yay! (playful music)

  1. I keep loving to go on Conan Abroad video's and watched this video multiple times and i keep trying to figure out the ranking systems they have on those portfolio's

  2. This is hilarious! I loved the Asian Dust Masks touch. Only wish it was longer! Make a movie with your fake Japanese family!

  3. The only American late night talk show host I can still enjoy watching.

    Conan still understands comedy unlike those other tools. Thank God for that.

    I respect this guy for just being himself over the many years I have been a fan.

    Everyone else is extremely boring, preachy and political.

    Jimmy Fallon was good too when he started .. But I can't watch him anymore either.

    Sadly.. He also bent the knee.

    Stay strong and true Conan. You will come out of this, a winner.

    I would volunteer to be your fake adopted Indian brother, any day of the week.

    I will even do an accent. Lol!

  4. People in the west all dream to get rid of their families 🙂 in Japan people rent fake families. What a different world!

  5. The prophet peace be upon him said: "Anyone who wants to have his provision expanded and his term of life prolonged should maintain ties of kinship."

    He also said: "Allah enjoins you to be dutiful to your mothers. Then He enjoins you to be dutiful to your mothers. Then He enjoins you to be dutiful to your fathers. Then He enjoins you to be dutiful to your next closest relative and then to your next closest relative."

    He also said: “He may not enter heaven he who severs ties of kinship“

    I wish japan starts seeing the importance of family, and may allah guide them to the straight path!

  6. You can see the fake dad feels a bit uncomfortable when conan tried to hug him. In Asian culture, hugging sometimes can be interpreted as being vulgar, even in inner family circle.

  7. When Conan looked at that beautiful woman that walked by and his fake mom slapped his chest lol hahah!! XD!! I died! She was like: You stop staring. That is not good!! Shame on you

  8. Damn no wonder Japan’s the best!! How about the bully part? Will that be in part 2? We all wanna see Conan kick some butt

  9. Your sexism and sarcasm is not translated well to the culture you are speaking to. It comes across as very racist and rude. The white privelage is loud here. So rude.

  10. If you are feeling all these unbearable pains I've got a perfect solution for all of you, commit suicide and be done with any pain you know

  11. This reminds of the scene in Indian movie. Son fails in exam. Son brings fake dad to principles office 😄😄😄😄😁😁😁😁😂😂😂
