Funnyman Will Ferrell made good on his promise to rid late-night host Conan O'Brien of his beard -- or red "mistake" as Ferrell called it on Funny or Die -- on Monday night.

In a hilariously drawn-out segment, Ferrell played barber for the 'Beardpocalypse' and shaved off O'Brien's whiskers mid-show. While it wasn't the most professional shave job in the world -- Ferrell said he'd only shaved dogs before -- the deed was done.

Sure, there was some other big international news on Monday, but Ferrell only had one bearded man in mind.

"There is nothing else going on in this country other than the fervor to shave that beard," he said before the shaving segment went down. "I turned on the television last night to see if people were talking about it...There were people celebrating at the White House. There were people celebrating in Times Square. Chanting 'U.S.A.! Shave the beard!'"
