Conan takes a shade bath in the Dead Sea during Israel trip teaser

Conan O’Brien aired a preview of his upcoming Conan Without Borders: Israel episode, which airs Sept. 19 at 10 p.m. Turns out the late night host brought his swim trunks and enjoyed a dip in the Dead Sea. “Wow! I can feel my body changing from all the salt,” he said. “My penis has been turned into a brined Vlasic pickle.”

He also made some casual new acquaintances, asking one woman, “Are you here with your boyfriend? You’re with me now. I took off my wedding ring. You can’t wear jewelry, so I’m not married while in the Dead Sea.”

Conan also learned about some local customs, including a mineral-rich Dead Sea mud mask that is apparently good for the skin. He quickly covered himself with mud and asked the woman he hit on earlier, “Do I look attractive now? Attractive Israeli man?” It turned out he might have needed even more mud covering his body for her. “You’re more attractive than without the mud,” she said.

Conan airs weeknights at 11 p.m. on TBS.
