On off-the chance that Conan O'Brien sired an illegitimate son, he could definitely do worse than Greg Keating. The Temple University student last week released an excellent video illustrating the traits he shares with his alleged father—from his shock of red hair to his strangely nimble hips.

Even though it sounds like the sort of hoax Jimmy Kimmel would perpetuate, the argument for O'Brien's paternity is convincing: Keating says in the video that he lives in a small New Jersey town about 10-miles outside of New York City, was conceived in 1993 when his mother worked as a producer for an NBC news show at 30 Rockefeller Center—a mere three floors above Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Keating alleges that she was canned when she got pregnant.

Why did Keating choose now to broadcast his eerie likeness to the late-night host? Tuition, probably. "What I'm trying to say Conan, is that we need each other: You need the warm embrace of your son, and I need an easier financial path through college," he said.

Unfortunately, if he wants to hang out with O'Brien, he's going to have to head to L.A.
