Conan O’Brien is doing all he can to piss off NBC before his departure from The Tonight Show soon. See the video below of Conan O’Brien doing some expensive-as-hell skits on NBC’s dime below.
Conan O’Brien bought a Bugatti car, dressed it as a mouse and played The Rolling Stones for a skit in order to rack up the cost for NBC to the tune of $1.5 million!
Conan had this to say:
“Let me ask you a question. Is this appropriate music for a car that looks like a mouse? No! Does it add anything at all to this comedy bit? No, it doesn’t! Is it crazy expensive to play on the air — not to mention the rights to re-air this clip on the Internet?”
Conan reportedly came to a $45 million deal with NBC for his exit from the “Tonight” show, allowing Jay Leno to return to the time slot he hosted for 17 years.
O’Brien will get more than $33 million with the rest going to his staff in severance, the network said in an announcement on the “Today” show.
His final show will be Friday, and Leno will return to “Tonight” on March 1.
O’Brien will be free to begin another TV job as soon as September, NBC said.
