In anticipation and promotion of his return to television (Nov 8 / TBS), Conan O'Brien has taken to the atmosphere in a bright orange blimp.

Until now, only the East Coast was forced to suffer this aerial trauma, but an announcement earlier confirmed our greatest fear, the Conan blimp is coming to the West Coast. Blimps are terrifying. This emotion is best expressed in the 2005 cathartic classic, The Blimp Song.

Follow Conan and Team Coco on Twitter, and stay tuned to LAist for up-to-the-minute blimp attack warnings.
