”There is nothing else going on in this country other than the fervor to shave that beard,” Ferrell joked.
“I turned on the television last night to see if people were talking about it…There were people celebrating at the White House. There were people celebrating in Times Square. Chanting ‘U.S.A.! Shave the beard!’”
Prior to the shaving, Conan O’Brien tweeted:
“Yesterday, we took care of one maniac with a beard. Today, Will Ferrell will take care of another. #Beardpocalypse,"
After Ferrell’s work, Conan had a professional clean his beard up doing the commercial break.
The scruff was nice, but we like clean shaven Coco, too.
