Conan O’Brien is currently visiting Japan, and discovering new things about the country, its inhabitants, and some rather strange elements of Japanese culture.
In this video, Conan rents a Japanese family, which is apparently a solution to the problem of loneliness. Lonely people essentially rent a new family.
Conan gets a new dad who is willing to apologize for what he did in the 1970s, a new mum, and a new daughter who’ll laugh at everything he says.
The fact that this is an actual thing you can do in Japan is bonkers, but I guess if it stops people getting lonely and depressed there’s no harm in it.
