Chris Gethard and Conan O’Brien Look Back on Their Awkward High School Years

Here’s a clip from Chris Gethard’s visit to last night’s Conan, where he and O’Brien both look back on their high school years — including Gethard’s perfect yearbook photo and Optimus Prime quote — and how much having a TV show has changed the treatment they get from some of their less than kind former classmates. “It was amazing to me. I had graduated high school in 1998, and I’m like ‘I’m 35, and now girls I went to high school with are starting to think I’m cool,'” Gethard explains. “It’s great — you get a TV show, it really turns around.” Watch another clip from the interview below:
