Will Conan O'Brien Man-Up?



Will Conan O’Brien Accept Finnish Dive Team Challenge?
By Jessica Pollack

Finland’s Jerobeam Salakyttä (Jerobeam Under-the-Covers), the modestly self-proclaimed “World’s Best Clown Dive Team” spent the last weekend at the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool in Long Beach, California Clash of the Clowns an official event of Long Beach Sea Festival.

They were there to put on a fund-raising event for McCormick Divers who train at the Belmont Plaza Pool. Crowds loved the team and were thrilled to watch the coverage on local Los Angeles TV Stations KABC-7 and especially watching KTLA-5’s Allie MacKay take the Celebrity Plunge Challenge by performing a trick with one of the clowns off the 10-meter diving platform.

With all of this great success, the team is wondering why Conan O’Brien, host of his own late night talk show on Turner Broadcasting System (TBS), hasn’t taken them up on their challenge to jump off of the 10-meter platform at Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool.
O’Brien has a long running mutual fascination with Finland since the Finnish people sent in the most emails of any country saying how much they enjoy watching O’Brien’s shows. Jerobeam Dive Team members explain that the people of Finland are very reserved. They love that O’Brien does so many crazy stunts. That is why the Clown Dive Team is confused that he hasn’t taken them up on their challenge. They expected that out of anyone in the U.S., Conan O’Brien would be the first to Man-Up and join them on the 10-Meter Platform.

Video of the team atop the 10-meter platform at Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool Challenging O’Brien is available on Youtube Several stories about O’Brien and his Finland connection pop up when you watch the Clash of the Clowns video. This includes videos showing O’Brien’s striking resemblance to Finland’s female President.

The team is headed for Las Vegas this week, but is happy to return to Los Angeles if O’Brien takes up their Challenge.
