Ex-Seattle musician/comedian Reggie Watts puts a respectfully irreverent, shambolic spin on Thin Lizzy’s 1976 hit “The Boys Are Back in Town” to welcome back Conan O’Brien from wherever the talk-show host was gone. Never realized this before, but Watts bears a resemblance to Thin Lizzy mainman Phil Lynott. If they ever make a film about Phil, Watts should be a contender to play him.
