While Conan O'Brien may not be the car guy that Jay Leno is, for our money, he's funnier. Especially when he's doing vehicular bits on air, in this case, rubbing elbows with monster truck drivers.

But Coco doesn't just play the redneck card and point and laugh. He actually suits up in full Nomex and drives one of the most famous monster trucks of all time, Grave Digger. While Conan's performance behind the wheel is pretty tame by Monster Jam standards, he sure seems like he's having fun and it translates into some laugh-out-loud comedy.

No matter how you might feel about the sport of crushing derelict vehicles, we're pretty sure there's some little part of everyone that would like to get behind the wheel of one of these awesome trucks and unleash 1,500 horses of destruction at least once in their life.

      That was definitely quite funny. I loved the part where he was pretending to know about engines.

        Wow, I didnt realize that so many people like Conan so much. Ive never really found him too funny but that is my own opinion.

      Besides being funnier than Leno, I'd argue Conan's more of a true "every man" car nut than Leno too. Instead of hoarding rare exotics in a warehouse or paying people to build supercars for him, Conan truly appreciates the awesomeness of a 90's Ford SHO. He clearly still loves it when he can afford a lot more. http://www.shoclub.com/print.php?news.67

        Leno will stop along the PCH with riders and drivers during the weekend and talk it up with these people.

      Not really a fan but that was a funny clip! I always knew these things were crazy powerful, but once I learned that 0-70, yes 70 is around three seconds... I'd love to see something like indoor stadium truck racing, only with monster trucks! Passing could be a problem though, hehe.
