Google's self-driving car caused a stir last week with people debating whether they would really want to give up complete control of a vehicle to a vehicle. The tech giant has been working with autonomous versions of the Toyota Prius and Lexus RX for years, but if the situation ever got a little too much like Westworld, the driver could always take over. Its latest creation eschews that ability, putting the computers entirely in control. Comedian Conan O'Brien realized that there still could be a few bugs in Google's utopian system.

Coco re-edited the original video to make things a little more like the horror that many people imagine it may be like to be in a car without any direct control. Imagine how often your navigation system is just a little bit wrong; now think about not being able to do anything to adjust for it. That's what makes the concept so scary.

If you're a cat fan, you might want to look away because computer-generated felines get the worst treatment here. Scroll down for a look at the autonomous prototype with a bit more pessimism and humor towards the future tech.

      Seriously AB... seriously... I understand that anything related to the autonomous vehicle generates tons of activity and that's good for business but an article on some spoof by a comedy show. There is a line between fine journalism and simply throwing some words together with the obvious intention of generating traffic, you guys pole vaulted over that line this time. And PLEASE enough with the misleading titles already....

        Really? Misleading? I'm guessing you are under some type of rock if you don't know who Conan is...

          HA! Conan the Barbarian wore sandals. I wonder if they were Crocs...

          Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet.

          Crocs suck. Not enough traction on a slippery battlefield, and they were made by Picts anyway. Cimmerian and Picts have this blood feud, you see. He would have worn Teva Terradactyls. Those were made back when Teva cared about build quality.

        Take a sedative. It is humor, and quite funny at that. And yes, a lot of that is most likely true and going to happen, especially the animals part.

      Imagine the jokes and satire when civilization transitioned from horse to automobiles. My great grandfather would ask if you came by "machine".
