Does anyone else remember the fake Bowie alterego, the Bucktoothed Wizard?

Inspired by this post regarding the early days of our beloved Leper Messiah, does anyone know how I might find images or footage of a late '90s Conan O'Brien sketch that included a fictional David Bowie alterego named the Bucktoothed Wizard?

This was around the time Bowie released Earthling (or possibly Hours). Bowie was Conan's guest, and Conan did a bit about lesser-known Bowie personas, including the Bucktoothed Wizard, complete with an old picture of Bowie with a wizard's hat and huge teeth that had been (badly and hilariously) photoshopped in. Bowie, as I recall, was practically in tears from laughing (as were my ex-husband and I -- to this day we can make each other giggle just by saying it).

I've googled to no avail. Can it be that my ex and I are really the only two people on the planet who recall this? Help me, fellow Bowiefans!

Response by poster: Ah, that's the one, all right. Thanks, gator! If anyone knows how to find footage of the full Conan bit as well, I'd be delighted.
