Conan O'Brien's Studio Rafters Will Become An Airbnb Pad
You now have the chance to stay in an Airbnb pad that is located in the rafters of Conan O'Brien's studio set.
Yes, these rafters:
Airbnb is hosting a contest where one "lucky" winner and a guest can submit an entry to win the chance to sleep in the rafters of the TBS Conan set located on the Warner Brothers lot in Burbank on June 3 for free. The perks are pretty slim, though you get to watch the show while it's being taped, get interviewed by O'Brien, and get free parking! You also get a bed, which is nice.
This is the description of the space on the Airbnb site:
Are you a fan of rafters built in 1927? Do you admire the kind of craftsmanship that only existed for a brief moment between the two World Wars? Then this contest is for you. Look down from the very rafters that kept a watchful eye on the filming of such classics as Mildred Pierce, The Big Sleep, and The Karate Kid Part II. And if you’re a Conan fan, all the better. Look down from the very rafters that kept a watchful eye on the filming of such classics as episode #173, episode #445, and episode #637. But be prepared - Conan will talk to you during a real show. So viewers will see you that night on their TVs, and millennials will see you the next day on their infernal devices. Warning: Contestants who are allergic to wood or wood products should not enter this contest.
To enter, you'll just have to go to this website before 9:59 p.m. PT/11:59 p.m. CT on June 1, and tell them why you'd want to subject yourself to sleeping in the rafters for a night. Godspeed.
