Many Airbnb users in Los Angeles rent out space to offset the absurd price of housing, but Conan O'Brien is getting down with the service just for the LOLs. The host has teamed up with Airbnb to give away a night in the rafters of his Burbank studio to one lucky fan and a guess. All you need to do is write a 550 character essay about why you should be chosen and follow one simple house rule: "No throwing D batteries at the host during the show. Please save those for the commercial break."
Here's the official description, via Airbnb:
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.
Now's the time for you creative writing majors who bailed on the craft to shine. Make sure you enter by midnight CT on June 1.
