Conan O'Brien apologizes to Levi Johnston, with William Shatner's help
If only every apology could be as heartfelt as Conan O'Brien's mea culpa to Levi Johnston.
Levi was made to look foolish on Wednesday night's "Tonight Show" through the use of Twitter messages that turned out to be written by a Johnston impostor. But on Thursday night, Conan made it right.
Fortunately, William Shatner can work with whatever material he's been handed -- which means that Thursday he managed to make Levi look equally foolish using verified tweets.
The Shatner stuff starts about two minutes in, but the lead-up is worth watching too.
We are giggling. Can only imagine what Shatner would do with this one, if we were famous enough for anyone to care. Alas, it ain't Taco Bell.

P.S. Note to "Tonight Show" writers: Was it that hard to miss that the first account was bogus? Or did the joke seem worth the risk? Not as if fake Twitter accounts are a new thing.
