R5-D4 just can't get out of R2-D2's shadow in this 'Conan' short

R5-D4 had a killer week helping out Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter at Comic-Con, but no matter how hard he tries, he just can't best his nemesis R2-D2.

Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter took the Fury Road to Comic-Con last week, and we didn't know it at the time, but the duo from "Conan" also brought a trusty R5-D4 droid from "Star Wars" to the show.

Throughout Comic-Con, R5-D4 served as Conan's production assistant, where he did things like make copies. He even picked up clothes from the dry cleaners and wrote half of Conan's monologue jokes for the show. And that's not to mention the time he spent cleaning toilets and giving out a foot massage or two.

But no matter how hard the little-known "Star Wars" droid tried, he just can't beat his nemesis, the popular, lovable R2-D2 droid who saved the day more than a few times throughout the "Star Wars" films. After Conan spoke highly of R5-D4 in the opening on Saturday's episode of Conan, high-roller R2-D2 was there with a few of his ladies rubbing his success in R5-D4's face.

Watch the clip above to see how it all turned out, and be sure to check out all of our Comic-Con coverage from this year's show.
