"Hello sir, welcome to my ice cream shop."

Conan O'Brien has aired the Super Bowl edition of his Clueless Gamer segment, and this one sure was something. During the seven-minute segment, O'Brien is joined by Super Bowl 50 contenders Von Miller of the Denver Broncos and Josh Norman from the Carolina Panthers. We thought they might just play id Software's new shooter and crack jokes. But, as you'll see, O'Brien gets off-topic pretty quickly--and hilariously.

O'Brien chats Miller up about his chicken farming plans and puts Norman up to an improv test (Norman was once a drama major in college). They also drink wine at one point for some reason. O'Brien also praises Miller's fashion sense, namely his fox hat, and they all proceed to wear their own for the rest of the video. Then Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (who was in last year's Super Bowl edition of Clueless Gamer) shows up.

Because he's from Boston, O'Brien also grills Miller about the hurt he put on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the AFC Championship game. O'Brien says Miller's performance in the game made his daughter cry.

Super Bowl 50 airs this Sunday, February 7, on CBS. The network's parent company, CBS Corp., also owns GameSpot.

Previous Clueless Gamer segments in the past featured Fallout 4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Assassin's Creed Unity, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, among others. It has been reported that some publishers and developers pay for their games to be featured in the segment.

The new Doom launches in May for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Earlier this week, the game's release date, a new trailer and a $120 collector's edition were all revealed.
