Conan's Bugatti Veyron mouse – Click above to watch video

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!

      That's the same color scheme as the Veyron I saw at the Petersen Automotive Museum in 2007... may have borrowed it from that.

      The last two weeks of this show have been great... I feel like a bad fan for not watching the show regularly until this debacle.

        I agree Conan is a big stupid

        Dan's right, and I think it's safe to say that Coco is a little P.O'd, but you know what? I love it. Leno is a douchebag now and so is NBC at this point, especially a certain CEO. I feel bad for Conan. He's actually a great guy compared to Leno. NBC didn't see Leno's new bit tanking so bad, and now Conan has to pay the price. It makes no sense to me, but I guess that is show biz. :P

        JDM Life, you are like the anti-me. Everything you say is completely the opposite from what I think. Furthermore, since I consider myself to be a relatively smart individual, you must be a mouth breathing ape? Maybe.

        guys, guys, be nice to JDM Life, because he owns: "a Sliver/Black GS400 and its a wonderful, powerful and luxurious sedan and still looks beautiful like the first day I brought it."
        .............sheesh..........

        Not funny. It's all just so fake, "oh we bought this Bugatti and made a Bugatti mouse, haha", what a lame ass. He should have jumped on the roof and started smashing it with a sledge hammer.

      Best Conan character since the Masturbating Bear.

        ...for me to poop on...

        Robot on a Toilet always cracked me up too.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Meh, mouse. Wake me when he unveils the Bugatti Horny Manatee edition.
        • 4 Years Ago
        That and Gun Toting Nascar Jesus.
      • 4 Years Ago
      If he is telling the truth about spending $1.5 million then...

      watching this has made me lose ALL respect for Conan. What are you doing wasting $1.5 million on a TANTRUM when there are thousands of people DYING in Haiti??? It's not funny, it's not clever, and it's not appropriate.

      Of course I am sure it is a rental and it cost maybe a coupe thousand, and the rights to the music can't be that much either for a company like NBC. But even pretending to waste all that money on something trivial is abhorrent right now.

        funny, ha ha? get it?
        • 4 Years Ago
        You are an absolute idiot, this was a comedy bit. They didn't actually buy the car because it would probably be close to 2 million if they did. It was a rented/borrowed car. Look at it for the humor...

        I agree that it's disrespectful to brag about wasting money (regardless of whether or not they actually spent the money) when there is a crisis in Haiti, not to mention people are still feeling the effects of the recession.

      Bugatti Veyron Mouse COCO edition.
      • 4 Years Ago
      This is why you don't let Ford infect a TV show. Jay did that and his show was canned. Conan did that and his show was canned.

      • 4 Years Ago
      Conan, you are brilliant, as usual. For your next comedy bit, please drive the Bugatti into a lake to avoid hitting a pelican, all to the original master recording of Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Don't forget that Lenos rating had been dropping steadily since 2004 & that his terrible 10pm show leading into the Tonight Show might just have something to do with Conans "bad" ratings.....

      Ultimately, the problem is with NBC's programming, not the hosts.
