Conan writer Deon Cole is no fan of the crazy rap training video Pier 1 Imports released a decade ago. "Whose idea was it to have this corny-ass black man rhyming about making some sales with a bunch of lame-ass white people dancing behind him?" Cole asked on last night's show. (Apparently the furnishings chain holds a similar opinion: Pier 1 removed the YouTube video shortly after it went viral online.) Anyway, watch the Conan segment below, and pay special attention to Cole's spoof Container Store rap training video—"Put your stuff in my box!"—toward the end.
