There is so much going on in this clip that I don’t know where to begin. The interview is with Mackenzie Davis, who will star in AMC’s new drama, Halt and Catch Fire, which premieres next weekend. During the course of the interview, Conan brings up a bizarre hobby of Davis’: She collects owl pellets and turns them into artwork.
For those that don’t know, an owl pellet is what an owl eliminates after he’s eaten his prey. The owl’s stomach digest everything except the skeleton, and once the bones are spit out, Davis turns them into works of art, a hobby that began with the bones roadkill.
This is bizarre serial-killer behavior, and Norm McDonald — sitting on the couch next to Davis — asks an insanely hilarious Norm McDonald-like question that basically brings the interview to a screeching halt.
My favorite part, I think, is Davis — who probably isn’t that familiar with Norm McDonald — asking, “What’s the punchline?”
