Video: Conan O’Brien Covers “I Will Survive,” Radiohead “Creep”
Conan O’Brien is no stranger to making headlines in the media world, and that trend will likely continue as coverage leaks in from his Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour, which kicked off on Monday night in the Pacific Northwest. First, there was the huge announcement that Conan inked a deal with TBS to bring his show to cable late-night. Then he kicked off his tour fronting the band he brought with him for a cover that seemed pretty apt for his situation, a twist on “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gayner.

Finally, video leaked of Conan covering the Radiohead classic, “Creep,” with his own twists on how the song should be made comically relevant.
Keep it up, Conando. I’ll be seeing you next week, brutha.
