In a somewhat unorthodox business decision, Conan O’Brien turned performance reviews of his show’s staff, normally the kind of thing that would remain private, into a remote segment that aired as part of the show itself. It’s cool to get a peek inside the inner workings of Conanco, where a performance review involves your boss dragging a tall chair from desk to desk so he can perch over staffers while he harasses them with a life-sized dummy of himself, asks them to decide which of their coworkers he should fire, and more.

This clip just goes to show that Conan is probably the most fun boss, or that this is actually how his company works, which is not as fun but makes this clip remarkably honest, so incredible in its own way.
