The bit isn't entirely original. Conan O'Brien was interviewing Bob Dole in the mid 1990s. The Bob Dole was just a picture of Bob Dole, but the lips were super-imposed and moved when he answered the question. Dole was running for president v. Bill Clinton, and O'Brien asked "Bob Dole" if he was at a disadvantage because Clinton was an "athlete". "Bob Dole" responded something like ... "People seem to forget Bob Dole played some ball to ... Bob Dole played Wing T for the Aztecs back in 1422, and still holds the record for kicking a human skull 65 yards in a game versus the Incas." It was one of the funniest things I've ever seen.
Gotta give credit where credit is due.
