A Conan O'Brien Taco Bell headquarters visit satisfied several different appetites. Framed as a favor for the comedian's talented head of IT, this hilarious drop-in involved a tour of the Irvine, California, facilities and some pretty imaginative concept creations.

Chris Hayes of the Conan show loves his daily dose of Taco Bell, but I wonder what he really thought of his boss's ridiculous culinary experiments within the innovation kitchen. After trying out the upcoming Quesalupa, the host pitched his own left-field recipes for the La Cone-A, a Mexican-themed meal within an ice cream cone, and the O'Taco Irish taco, served with cabbage, corned beef and Guinness sauce. The invention of a hands-free burrito delivery system was also demonstrated by Conan O'Brien. Taco Bell even offered these outlandish dishes to its hired taste testers, who laughed and and delivered mixed reviews.
