Andy Richter is piloting a 2012 Chevrolet Sonic from Burbank, California to New York City as part of a stunt for Conan O'Brien's self-titled late night talk show. It's officially been one year since Team Coco found a home on TBS, and to celebrate, the entire Conan crew is packing up for a special performance at the Beacon Theater in the Big Apple. While the rest of the crew is turning to the miracle of commercial flight for the trip east – including O'Brien himself – Richter is saddling up in the newest compact from Chevrolet for a three-day road trip across the continent.

Hilarity is bound to ensue. The Team Coco site has been configured to allow viewers to follow along with Richter's big Sonic adventure, and the comedian will also be tweeting along the way to keep everyone abreast of his progress. Keep an eye out for tweets with the hashtag #orangebullet. In the meantime, hit the jump to see O'Brien sending Richter off yourself.

      It appeared to be a stick? So maybe he has a turbo model?

        Please, give us evidence of a brand new Chevy vehicle that's EVER been needed to be replaced in the first 3,000 miles. I'd LOVE to see that link.

      I can think of worse cars to drive cross-country in. Like anything with a Hyundai badge. Or an Aveo, for that matter. Despite the sporty intentions it rides pretty nicely. So it should be a good highway cruiser.

        Yeah, why in the world would I want to make a cross country trek in an Equus, Sonata, or either Genesis when I could do it in a SONIC?

          Because should the Sonic break, GM will actually fix it under warranty, instead of exhausting the only two dealerships within TWO HOURS of your home and when you call them having them tell you "if you feel that they won't fix it, go somewhere else" after having your traction and stability control "fixed" for the FIFTH time within the first HALF A YEAR of ownership. That's how KIA works, I'd think their corporate cousin wouldn't be much different... why would they? It's the greatest scam in the car market right now - offer the "best warranty" and don't actually support it.

          None of those cars are sub compacts, and the Sonic is of Korean design, so maybe you aren't being sarcastic!

      Dumbest name ever. I'll stick with Hyundai if I need a small car. GM still has no idea how to build a car. Everytime I get my hopes up that they have changed the longevity is not there. Nice car at 0 miles falling apart at 150,000. The bailout sealed the deal. Never again GM. Never again.
