Conan O'Brien's (Alleged) Illegitimate Son Just Wants His Daddy (And Maybe His Money Too)
That's right folks. Conan has an illegitimate son - maybe.
An individual by the name of Gregory Keating has come forward with a subtle suggestion that Conan O'Brien is his father in a Youtube video that has gone viral.
Now rich, successful celebrities have no shortage of one night stands, and certainly aren't lacking in individuals claiming to be their illegitimate sons or daughters (just look at 50 Cent's Twitter feed - the man has given Genghis Khan and Frank Sinatra a run for their money.)
But this is no ordinary poseur. Here's the thing. He's the spitting image of Conan. The round face, the pale complexion, the shock of thick red hair combed gently to the side ; it all just screams 'O'Brien.'
The impoverished college student implores his genealogical father to come forward and just spend more time with him, or at least spend more money on him. Just watch the heartwarming (and kind of creepy) video below.
In case you haven't gotten it - the whole thing is an elaborate and well constructed ruse; a joke, but a convincing one at that. The resemblance is uncanny, even if the comedic talent in Greg is lacking. But, with a little loving and nurturing, Gregory Keating could become a Conan 2.0. After all, isn't that what daddies are for?
UPDATE: Conan Tweeted a little something about this "Son" of his.
A kid in New Jersey is falsely claiming to be my illegitimate son. For the record, I have three children: Neve, Beckett, and @RonanFarrow.— Conan O'Brien (@ConanOBrien) January 14, 2014
