Conan O'Brien took to the streets of Mexico City to pass a collection box to help President Donald Trump build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border, but nobody was donating.

The late night TBS show host, while relocating his show to Mexico City for a one-time episode to air on March 1, took his collection box and some special incentives to try to raise pesos, a video released on YouTube Friday shows.

The incentives included an "I paid for the wall" tote bag proclaiming that the donor gave money toward the wall, and a special signed photograph of Trump, with the caption "moochas gracias," with O'Brien explaining "that's how he spells it."

The comedian picked up many laughs from those on the streets of Mexico's capital city for his plea, while telling the people crowding around him that Trump has often stated that "Mexico will pay for the wall."

O'Brien announced in January that he'd be filming his special, "Conan Without Borders: Made in Mexico," following Trump's inauguration and his repeated vows to bring illegal immigration under control.

For the special, show was recorded at a Mexico City studio by an all-Mexican crew, in front of an all Mexican audience.
