Conan O’Brien gets Satisfaction from latest character: $1.5 million Bugatti Veyron Mouse
You might have heard about a little, but very expensive, storm in a teacup involving NBC, Conan O’Brien and Jay Leno. A quick summary for those of you doing other things with your lives, Jay left The Tonight Show to do a 10PM show, and Conan took over The Tonight Show. Seven months later, Jay’s show isn’t working out for NBC, so Jay gets to go back to late night TV, and NBC tells Conan he can push the The Tonight Show back a half hour, or he can walk.
So Conan’s walking. But before he does he’s going to spend all the NBC money he can, saying, “We’re going to introduce comedy bits that aren’t so much funny as they are crazy expensive.” Hence the Bugatti Veryon mouse. And its really expensive theme music. Follow the jump to watch the video. Thanks to all who sent this in!
