The Best Thing on the Internet Today: Kevin Hart, Ice Cube and Conan Take a Spin
Using a ride-share app called Lyft.

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube are starring in a hilarious-looking buddy cop comedy called Ride Along, set for release on January 17th, 2014. Lyft is ride-sharing app that allows vehicle-less users to connect with carowners in their area who are willing to give them rides in exchange for money. Conan O’Brien is a talk-show host. 

Last night, Conan, Hart and Cube decided to go for a ride-along with an unsuspecting Lyft user, and the results were magical. In the clip, the three stars take an adventure with a motoroist named Anthony and discuss (among other things): the proper way to pronounce 40, Chick-O-Sticks, the Matthew McConaughey-Jennifer Garner starrer Ghosts of Girlfriend’s Past, and the best place to purchase weed in Los Angeles. Each star flexes considerable improv and natural comedy skills. And you get to hear Conan earneslty ask Ice Cube, “What is a swisher sweet?”

The video is 9-minutes long and absolutely worth your time. Here’s to hoping Conan is around for Ride Along 2.
