KEY POINTS

  • Conan O’Brien's 11-year run on TBS is finally coming to an end this week
  • He will join HBO Max after the TBS Show
  • Paul Rudd will be next seen in "Ghostbusters: Afterlife"

Actor Bill Hader made his final appearance on the "Conan" show that aired Monday on the TBS network as the show is scheduled to end on June 24. However, the interview was crashed by Paul Rudd and fans couldn’t get enough of it.

During the interview, Hader, 43 recalled his dress rehearsal with Rudd, 52, at "Saturday Night Live" and how he refused to perform in a high-pitched voice. Rudd walked in wearing a tuxedo to disagree with Hader's story.

Rudd told host Conan O'Brien to judge himself by watching a clip. But like always, he played a scene from the 1988 film, “Mac and Me,” featuring a kid in a wheelchair falling from a cliff. Apparently, Rudd has been showing the same clip from the said movie on Conan O’Brien’s show.

"It’s been like 25 years of you coming on the show," O’Brien said after watching the clip. "You’d always say ‘I’ve got a clip,’ and every time, for years, I would be convinced that I would see the real clip because you’re such a genuinely nice person. […] And then you pull that shit every time!"

Fans of the "Conan" show are well aware of all the appearances Rudd made on the talk show and how every time he shows the same clip instead of his upcoming movies or shows.

Netizens took to the comment section of the YouTube video of the episode and noted how they knew it was coming.

One of the fans wrote: "As soon as I saw Paul Rudd in the thumbnail I knew “Mack and Me” was coming."

Another fan wrote: "THE PAUL RUDD bit hits harder than any special guest. Conan is really leaving. Still as funny now as the first time, for a 20yo joke. To realize this is the last time we'll see this makes me sad."

Fans also took to Twitter to share their feelings about Rudd’s appearance on the show. 

"Aww.. last Mac and Me clip comedy bit by Paul Rudd on #Conan tonight. I’m happy and I’m also sad. It felt like an ending to an era," wrote one fan.

"It was all going so well tonight, until THIS guy showed up…," O'Brien, 58, wrote on Twitter.

Rudd will be next seen in "Ghostbusters: Afterlife," which is slated to release on Nov. 11, 2021, in theaters. As far as his Marvel projects are concerned, the actor will be seen in "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" in 2023.

On the other hand, O’Brien will join the HBO Max streaming service after finishing his TBS show. However, what exactly he will be doing on HBO Max is still a surprise for his fans.
