Romney’s good looks vs. Conan’s hair envy

Conan O’Brien thinks Mitt Romney’s presidential exploratory roll-out video is based solely on good looks.

The late night host of “Conan” ran clips of the web video from Romney’s site, zooming in and out on the pol’s head, adding a sexy background beat and emphasizing his hair, smile, and adding a twinkle to his teeth.

O’Brien’s team left in only a handful of spoken lines, including “I’m Mitt Romney,” “In 1985 I helped found a company,” “I’m Mitt Romney,” and “Thanks so much!”

@TeamCoco (a Twitter account managed by O’Brien’s staff) tweeted: “Are @MittRomney’s new campaign ads TOO sexy or just sexy enough? You be the judge.”

@MittRomney fired right back at the comedian: “Loved the video. Sounds to me like @ConanOBrien has hair envy.”
