About (Late) Last Night: Marisa Miller paddles with Conan [Video]
Victoria's Secret model Marisa Miller paid a visit to "Conan" last night and -- would you believe it? -- host Conan O'Brien seemed pretty happy about it. When they're around beautiful women, every late-night host has his own patented shtick: Jay Leno asks lots of uncomfortable personal questions, David Letterman showers them with compliments and O'Brien acts like a short-circuiting robot; you half expect his head to spin around and springs to shoot out of his ears.
And so it was Monday night when Miller, decked out in a black miniskirt and hot pink stilettos, took a seat next to O'Brien. "You look extremely sexy," he said, punctuating his sentence with nasal laughter. Miller came with a purpose, of course: promoting her new line of stand-up paddle boards. (Well, that's a new one.)
The plan was for Miller to give O'Brien a paddling lesson and "tap into your inner surfer boy. ... I'm gonna find it."
"Look hard," O'Brien joked.
During the demonstration (in front of a green-screen projection of beautiful turquoise water) Miller took a hands-on approach, adjusting the placement of O'Briens legs and hips.
"Need more help," he demanded.
In the end, Miller gave O'Brien a positive assessment. "You're a natural. ... You have a good center of gravity and your abs are really hard," she said, smacking his torso.
"You know what's really hard? That right there!" O'Brien said, pointing to his butt, and Miller complied with a few quick spanks.
The things a girl has to do to sell a few paddle boards these days...
