Jamie stopped by The Conan O’Brien show on February 1st where he debuted a party trick we’ve all been secretly dying to see him do in person. We’ve all seen the photographs but never did we think he’d perform the stunt for us on television.

With a crowd filled and fueled by Official Fifty members among other fans of Jamie who made the journey to LA, Jamie starts the interview by stating that he doesn’t have fond memories of the Warner Brothers’ lot.

He auditioned for the film ‘Rock of Ages,’ a few years back and before leaving for the audition, he grabbed a bottle of liquid courage (Whiskey) which didn’t turn out to be such a good idea.

“I had to sing a couple of songs that were well beyond my capabilities. I was first up. It was like 9:45 in the morning and I had just woken up, brushed my teeth and went here, came, here. And I thought, I’ll bring a little bottle of whiskey with me because it really made sense to me at the time. And I thought, it’ll do two things; it’ll give me a bit of courage, because I didn’t think I was a very good singer and the other it would do would warm my vocal chords. So that was the plan anyway. And I parked right before the big water tower thing, and I (…) open the door and I take the whiskey and drank it and as soon as it hit my lips, I puked. I’m talking like, instantly like, really, not just threw up I mean I really threw up all over the side of the car, all these executives are driving by in like little golf buggies and stuff. And then I didn’t think it through. I didn’t bring mouth wash or mints or anything so I went into this audition smelling like whiskey and puke and then sang really badly. Anyway, that’s why you didn’t see me in ‘Rock of Ages.’

Speaking of how sometimes it’s hard for Americans to understand his thick Irish accent, Jamie tells Conan and the audience that if he orders food at a fast food restaurant, he does it in an American accent, because there’s just some things he doesn’t want others to get wrong. At In and Out Burger, he goes for the four-by-four. Four burger patties on a bun with a bucket of cheese – we knew Jamie liked his burgers!

“Were you always confident with women?”

(…)

“I was always anything but confident. (…) In fact when we were in University we used to play this game because I was totally incapable of talking to girls and a guy on the Rugby team I played on at University played this game called ‘Shy Guy.” He explains how his friends would go up to a girl and say “My friend’s over there, he’s really shy, but he likes you.” and the idea is that the girl is ‘Awe that’s really sweet, who is he?”

“So one night we tried this on twins at the university (…) and she took one look at Jamie and said ‘Nope.'” Talk about a missed opportunity!

Onto Jamie’s party trick, which he eludes to the fact that Christian may perform this trick in Fifty Shades Darker. Jamie displays how strong he is by showcasing his upper body strength in a balancing act off the edge of Conan’s desk. We’ve seen this before but not in the flesh. Conan’s face says it all!

“This is such a bad idea.”
“I don’t know what’s gonna happen now.”
“Just before I do this, if my face breaks or anything, you will pay for all that, right?”
“I myself will not pay for it.”

He does it with ease but uh, oh – it looks like he pulled a pec muscle! He’s in obvious discomfort but brushes it off. “I’m honestly not exaggerating I’ve just pulled my pec. Yeah that’s not good. Did it look good?” Yes Jamie, it looked beautiful!

A Darker clip is then shown.

Conan ends the interview by telling Jamie he’s really fun to talk to, while fans yell out that they love him.

Let’s hope Jamie does more American television interviews in the future because this past week has been a blast!
