Conan Follows Up on Pipedream Tour with Will Forte!

Forte on Conan

After a recent shout-out by Kristen Schaal on Conan last month, the late night talk show host followed up with Schaal’s Last Man On Earth co-star, Will Forte, on last night’s episode. The comedians discussed the entire crew’s exclusive Pipedream headquarters tour, from the halls of the office to the hand-painted King Cocks in the manufacturing facility.

“We got a call from Pipedream,” explained Forte. “It’s right next door. It’s a multi– it’s like, several buildings. A dildo compound… We go over there and it is just– I just feel like dildos just exist. You don’t realize–,”

Screen_Shot_2015-12-04_at_7.51.39_AMConan interrupts, “They have to be manufactured by someone!”

Forte continues, “I never thought about that. You go in there and every detail –there’s a person who pours the latex into the mold. And then they dump it into this big thing, there’s a person who’s in charge of cooling it down, and then there’s these very nice group of ladies who paint veins.”

“You mean it’s that much attention —  it’s handcrafted, is what you’re saying,” asks Conan. “And you know what I like? That it’s made in America!”

“It’s impressive,” said Forte. “It’s a real business.”

See the entire five minute interview on Pipedream’s official Vimeo.

“We are very excited to see such incredible mainstream interest in Pipedream’s products and facilities,” said Chairman and CEO Nick Orlandino. “We want to thank Conan and his crew for their continued coverage, and our Last Man On Earth neighbors for continually sharing their positive impressions of our global enterprise.”

Orlandino has extended a personal invitation to Conan to tour the Pipedream facilities, plus a once-in-a-lifetime challenge to come and see how a dildo is created from A to Z; from concept, to production, to packaging.
