What I Did During Spring Break The Writers Strike Updated Below!

If you were a late night TV host, how would you spend all the free time you had with your writers on strike? Conan O’Brien and staff found a simply electrifying way to pass the time: Spinning wedding rings and timing how long it takes for it to stop.

By the way, Late Night Insider, Late Night with Conan O’Brien’s blog, is holding a contest; record yourself spinning a ring like Conan, and you can win a “awesome mystery prize.”

The link to the video is here.

Update!

A commenter below, who clearly knows more than I, has said that this clip was taken during a rehearsal over the summer. Not during the strike. I stand corrected, but the clip is still funny. So check it out.
