Tom Jones’ Elvis Presley Story Is Best Talk Show Segment Of The Year So Far

With the escalating talk show wars between Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel over on the big networks, it's easy to overlook Conan O'Brien, who presides over that small island nation called TBS (check your local listings). But Conan has had some of the best segments on late-night TV since he started the show in 2010 after being dumped by NBC.
Among them in the past couple of weeks have been David Spade, who had some awesome Chris Farley stories, Jennifer Lawrence, who says she's slept with most of the Hunger Games cast (sort of), and John Cleese, who once made his perpetually-morose mother laugh by cheerfully threatening to kill her.
Best segment of the year so far? It would have to be Tuesday's interview with Tom Jones, who recalled the time in the 1960s that Elvis Presley pitched him a song in a most unusual way.
"Red, Sonny -- my pants!"
Hey still sounds fantastic, by the way (Jones, not Elvis).
