Conan O'Brien Show Leftovers for Sale in NYC
On the flip side of Jimmy Fallon turning the Late Night Studio green can be found materials and items donated by "Late Night with Conan O’Brien" to the do-gooding, recycling Jawas from our local nonprofit Build It Green! (BIG) Items include a pair of hockey helmets topped with upside-down baby dolls in stars-and-stripes leotards. Like everything sold by BIG, profits from sales of O'Brien junk reusables will go toward environmental education classes and lectures. However after word of the sale got out on Sunday, team green moved to place the items on e-bay, that is, all but one with which they refuse to part."We don't really know what a lot of the things were used for, we just took them" said Build It Green! manager Harvey Jaswal. Platforms from the Max Weinberg 7 band were priced at $200 each, a fake brick wall was going for $40 and four-by-eight sheets of scenery backdrop could be had for $8. A life-size cutout of NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, with whom O'Brien had a long-running mock feud, is not for sale and has been designated by BIG to be its mascot.
What's the right chair to choose? The chair that's already been used and isn't new.
Late Night art director John Rourke Conners used Build It Green! in the past to get bargain-basement props and also let BIG take leftover pieces from sets. Lest you think it the first time Build It Green! has tested the waters of show biz, think again; its collection already features props from recent films such as the Julia Roberts thriller Duplicity and the upcoming remake of Fame.
