Cam Newton walking off from his Super Bowl post-game presser a few years ago drew some controversy over the next several days. Some people hammered him for it the way they did a Marshawn Lynch presser, while others pushed it aside as a non-issue.

Conan explained the Cam Newton situation on his TBS show, leading to him telling a bad joke about Fig Newtons. Spoiler: it’s pretty cringeworthy.

The only thing that could’ve made this better is if Cam Newton joined him on the show and gave him some pointers.
