What was your life like when you were 22?
It probably didn’t involve sitting poolside with Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szhor eating cake and dancing around with pom poms.
At 22 you were probably a recent grad, unemployed, living in a tiny New York City apartment with roaches and pinching pennies.
Going out at night involved dive bars in the East Village drinking PBR and not swanky clubs with confetti, disco balls and cat-ear headbands.
Funny-man Conan O’Brien released a hilarious video response to Swift recounting his times as a too-skinny red-head 22 year- old.
“Taylor Swift is great, she’s very popular and talent,” O’Brien starts off saying in his video. “But I know what it’s like being 22 and I don’t think that’s an accurate representation of what it’s like to be 22.”
Conan goes on to point out all things we were all thinking when watching Swift’s music video.
His first comment is that when you’re 22, you’re not living in that apartment.
“I didn’t see any Ramen noodles in that video, because that’s all you’re eating at 22,” he says.
According to O’Brien when you’re 22 you don’t go outside. Instead you sit in your apartment watching ‘Saved By the Bell.’ To spice it up, you eat Lucky Charms.
“That’s what it’s like being 22,” he says.
