Meet Conan O'Brien's Brilliant Editor, Dan Dome.

The best thing about this very funny spoof trailer for a nonexistent exploitation movie called "Butterworth," which aired on "Conan" this week, passes by in a matter of seconds:


Although these fake credits include a few amusing reference points (Michael Bay, president biographer Doris Kearns Goodwin), they're also partly the real deal: The "re-editing" credit goes to one Dan Dome, a prolific editor whose work has included numerous bits for Conan O'Brien's new program. In this case, he shows a firm grasp on the rhythms of a classic blaxploitation trailer with the same ease that a few directors brought to the fake B-movie trailers made for "Grindhouse" a few years back. Along those same lines, I hope somebody has considered optioning the rights to "Butterworth" and milking it for all its worth. I mean, if it worked for "Machete"…

Here's the full trailer:
