'Conan' Chinese Rip-Off Gets Taste Of Own Medicine (VIDEO)
Conan O'Brien made a surprising discovery recently -- a Chinese variety show, "Da Pang," is ripping off the opening title sequence from his show without permission. And not almost, sort of ripping off. The show lifts the title sequence from "Conan" almost frame-by-frame.
And this is an injustice for which Conan will not stand. After viewing the actual Chinese variety show in question, Conan couldn't make heads or tails of what it was trying to accomplish. Imagine watching "Yo Gabba Gabba" after eating some bad, hallucenagenic Chinese food, and you might get this program.
So Conan did the logical thing and ripped off that show by stealing elements of that show and putting them on his talk show. Frankly, we think the "giggling Chinese schoolgirl" look doesn't look bad on Andy Richter.
And to think, China would do this to Conan after he did such a great job delivering their culture's cuisine around New York City.
