As Conan O'Brien so frequently does, he's selected yet another new technology to poke fun of on his late-night comedy show. The latest victim? None other than Google's Glass. While the product has been inching its way from developer to mainstream, most recently in a spiffy new commercial that shows off some of its features, it seems that Google has yet another product that may be far closer to becoming a hit. Or, a sit.


According to Conan's latest parody, "Google Ass" is a product that you "stick on your butt" in order to record anything and everything that happens directly underneath or behind you. Yeah, it's just a gag, but it's a pretty good one. Nothing wrong with poking a little fun at the goofy giant, right? Watch and enjoy.

Is it really 'ripping' when you don't say anything negative and just show a different product?

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

I would be interested in using Google Glass on my daily motorcycle commute as there are plenty of dumb-ass drivers that I'd like to video. It might even actually help me in court some day!

Dave, you deserve a medal for using a MC daily in SoCal.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Big Smile I love to ride, and I even have motorcycle dreams! 44 MPG and unlimited carpool lane privileges help, too. I would really be interested in those glasses, but they're waay too expensive. I don't understand how they can justify that price when it seems there is nothing to them!

Conan O'Brien is an idiot and not funny at all.
