The Tonight Show Set Looks Familiar
First, I want to say that I have been watching “The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien” every night this week. I find the show to be funny and entertaining, and I feel Conan is doing great so far. Unlike Jay Leno, Conan reminds me of the great Johnny Carson in many ways; I hope Conan will have the same longevity as host that Johnny had.
Moving on, I came across something interesting this afternoon. Someone with too much spare time feels that the design of Conan O’Brien’s new set on “The Tonight Show” was taken from the video game Super Mario Brothers.
Obviously, the background on the talk show’s set was not patterned after the video game. The example picture contains many different scenes from the Nintendo game cut up into pieces and spliced together so it will match the shapes in the set’s background; This method could be done with any video game, but Super Mario Brothers was a great choice.
The video game theory behind the set’s odd design was very creative.
