"Conan Without Borders" heads to Australia

Per Hugh Jackman’s threatening request, Conan Without Borders trekked to Sydney, Australia (read: send Conan a threatening message, and he will visit your country). 

In the next installment of the Emmy-winning series, Coco might end up as a professional Australian football player or he might just end up as bait for deadly Saltwater Crocodiles.

Here’s a sneak peek into what Conan got into in the land down under.

Conan’s first order of business was mastering Aussie slang. His instructor, Gabrielle, taught him the must-knows from "budgie smuggler" and "stubbie" to "Acca Dacca."

Then the fair-skinned Conan went to the Cancer Council to shop for the perfect sun protection. After protecting his very-Irish complexion, he took to Bondi Beach where lifeguards rescued him from the dangerous currents.

After getting sun kissed, Conan headed to a Sydney Swans pre-season training session to try his hand at Australian rules football.

"The minute I saw the short shorts, I knew this was the sport for me,” Conan said.

He felt so confident he even told the team he would take to the foreign sport, “like a Swan to water.”

After his short stint as Swan, he took on a different challenge: the Australian wilderness. In a survival lesson with Kevin Newton, Conan learned to make fire. He also made time for a wild walkabout where he saw kangaroos, emus and koalas.
