Paul Rudd Pranks Conan O’Brien Again WIth Fake Ant-Man Clip
Paul Rudd and late night host Conan O’Brien have a long-running gag, wherein Rudd will bring a clip from his new movie… but it will actually turn out to be a video from the ‘80s movie, Mac and Me, which O’Brien accurately describes as a “terrible ET rip-off.”
And yet he neglected to mention the film’s gratuitous cameo by Ronald McDonald!
This time, Rudd came on O’Brien’s TBS talk show, Conan, and ran a preview scene from Marvel’s Ant-Man in which his character, Scott Lang becomes more familiar with the ants at his command. And inevitably, Mac and Me shows up not once, but twice!

Of course, O’Brien is in on the gag with Rudd, but it doesn’t make it any less funny to watch him pout when it happens again and again.
In fact, here’s a look back at Rudd’s previous Mac and Me pranks on O’Brien’s talk shows.
Ant-Man is out in theaters today.
