After yesterday’s "What Connects in Comedy" seminar, presented by Time Warner at the 2013 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, Conan O’Brien and Anderson Cooper took a moment to chat with Cannes Lions TV.

Watch the video below to hear their thoughts on how people connect through comedy, the importance of authenticity, and social media’s role in producing the news or a comedy show. As Conan points out in the video, “The fact that it can be tweeted out there to millions of people or could show up on Facebook doesn’t change the fact that you still need to come up with a good product.”
