Does it even need any commentary? I don't think so.
Update: OK I've got to add one comment.
This is not just a lie, it's a lie that everyone who worked on this event could see with their own eyes to be a lie. The resort where Conan is sipping his tropical cocktail in the water off the serene beach is surrounded by razor wire fences and patrolled by armed guards. All of the resorts down there have that kind of security.
Further, not only do they know it's a lie, we know it's a lie. We all know this is a lie and yet, there he is, soaking up the rays and sipping a drink like it's Grand Cayman.
What in heaven's name is going on with us? It's like the dominant culture is completely psychotic.
