Conan O'Brien has proven himself a pro at delivering Chinese food and apple picking with Mr. T, and now he's raised the bar on food-related comedy bits with his newest invention: the brisket pinata. As part of his slate of shows in Dallas, O'Brien's been launching "uniquely Texan" items at a basketball hoop in AT&T Stadium with the help of a catapult supposedly stolen from Mark Cuban's bedroom. After testing out a 72oz steak and a newborn basketball prodigy from Baylor Medical Center (relax, it's a fake baby), the team went for a pinata packed with authentic Texas brisket. See what happens when they send this ultimate party asset for the three-pointer above.
