Conan O’Brien + Tarja Halonen, Former President of Finland – Celebrity Doppelgangers
Way back when Conan O’Brien was on NBC’s ‘Late Night With Conan O’Brien,’ there was a running gag that he was really big in Finland because of his striking resemblance to the 11th Finnish president, Tarja Halonen.
Remember this? Nostalgia!
The gag went so far as to film the late night show in Finland in 2006, with Conan meeting Tarja herself in Helsinki. He arrived with a Valentine’s Day gift after campaigning for her re-election by using their resemblance to mostly his advantage.
Halonen ended her role in office in March 2012 to little fanfare from Conan. Way to forget about your political bestie, Coco.
