Leikola told IS in the summer of 2018 that O’Brien’s program had a clear impact on his career and he was then offered significantly more gigs.
- Conan's performance was shared so much on Facebook that I was even stopped in between on the street that hey, are you that “ass guy”, Leikola said in 2018.
At the time, Leikola chose a story for the most important TV appearance of his career until then, in which he broke the ambiguity of the word “ass” in the American language for a minute.
- However, I definitely wanted to do that thing and precisely because it is so memorable. Fortunately, Conan's people got excited about it. On American TV, it goes to the limits that it is possible to present one, even though there is more play in the language and not a fucked up thing, Leikola said earlier.
