Mayor Conan

6 Comments

American comedian Conan O’Brien, right, jokes with Akio Matsumoto, mayor of Hokuei in Tottori Prefecture, in front of "Conan Station" on Friday after he was made honorary mayor for a day. O'Brien also helped cook 1,200 Aussie beef burgers for the townspeople (photo below). O'Brien and Matsumoto have bantering for the past two weeks ever since O'Brien learned that Hokuei is also known as “Conan Town” (after anime/manga "Detective Conan," whose creator was born in Hokuei).

Someone even dressed Conan for the part of a small-town bureaucrat...

"O'Brien also helped cook 1,200 Aussie beef burgers"

I bet the U.S. and Japanese beef companies are furious.

In that top picture, Mr. Conan looks a little jet lagged.

This is pretty cool. Just two people from different countries having some fun.
