Radiohead seems to hold a special spot in Conan O’Brien’s heart: Not only did O’Brien perform “Creep” during a stop on his “Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour” last year, but UK’s biggest rock band was the first-ever musical guest on Conan’s “Late Night” back in ’93. Now, Coco shows his appreciation for Thom Yorke and the guys in an impromptu performance from his Summer Concert Series with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
Prompted by Sharpe and co. quietly riffing on “Creep,” O’Brien breaks into the early Readiohead single with a series of voices. He lands somewhere between Dick Van Dyke’s chimney sweep in “Mary Poppins” and Dracula, yet somehow doesn’t sound too far off from mumbly Mr. Yorke. Watch below.
