As mentioned, the most popular video Conan‘s official YouTube channel is a performance of Sound of Silence by Disturbed. The 2016 clip has surpassed 100 million views and for good reason. It is highly recommended that you check it out.
But for this slideshow, we are going to make an exception and bend the rules. If anyone deserves special treatment from late night fans, it’s Conan O’Brien. So with that, we look at Team Coco’s second most popular YouTube video but its most popular that actually features Conan.
Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, and Conan O’Brien became an unlikely comedy trio with their Lyft video from 2013. With 61 million views, it is the third most popular clip on the Conan YouTube channel.
In a rare case of the sequel outperforming the original, Cube, Hart and O’Brien reunited to give Conan staffer Diana Change a driving lesson. The clip proves that O’Brien is the best in late night when it comes to remote pieces and that Ice Cube and Kevin Hart can do no wrong together.
On his own, Hart has become one of the most popular guest on Conan. Clips featuring Hart discussing working with Will Ferrell and a working out with O’Brien have both averaged about 20 million views.
