Conan O'Brien has taken over the Chicago Theatre this week where he is taping four episodes of Conan to coincide with the TBS Just For Laughs Festival.
On Monday, Conan unveiled a 17-foot bobblehead of himself which he plans to donate to Chicago. "As a thank you, I had a sculpture created that reflects Chicago's size, power, and beauty," Conan explained as he revealed the massive monument.
Conan is asking Chicago residents to chose where they want the giant bobblehead to stand by tweeting suggestions to @teamcoco with the hashtag #COCOBOBBLE or posting them at teamcoco.com/cocobobble.
