Recently Brinkman & Associates Reforestation veteran tree planter, Yanou Faucher, filmed a fan response on his Iphone while on a coastal cut block and submitted it to Conan O’Brien's late night talk show. Yanou’s dry comic delivery and the picturesque setting of Vancouver Island led to it being showcased on Conan for a segment called Fan Corrections. Conan’s writers devised an elaborate comedy skit rebuttal to Yanou, where at one point Conan to know how to plant trees better than Yanou (who is trees away from hitting his millionth this year), instructing Yanou that slash piles won't grow: “you can’t just chop them up and make a big stack!” But in my opinion all the props, production and professional comic writers, can’t top Yanou’s razor sharp finishing line, “I’m going back to doing something that matters!”
Watch it here on the Brinkman Treeplanter’s Hub and decide for yourself whether you think Conan or Yanou had the last laugh.
Either way, way to go Yanou for going head to head with one of the world’s most popular comics and representing all tree planters with comic class.
