Conan's 'Media Reacts' series tackles 'Yeah, Baby!' announcement

Mike Myers, the actor who first portrayed English spy Austin Powers 16 years ago, recently announced that he and his wife are expecting their second child.

The character of Austin Powers had many catchphrases, but the most well-known is probably his "Yeah, Baby!", usually delivered in a loud, over-exaggerated, very British way.

On Thursday night's "Conan," host Conan O'Brien noticed something: In an attempt to seem hip and tuned into pop culture, dozens of news outlets had their anchors reporting the Myers' baby news in precisely the same way.

Some poor intern (most likely) then pieced together anchors from various news outlets all across the country sounding ridiculous - not to mention, repetitive - when attempting to emulate Myers' Austin Powers accent.
