Big Pimpin

I'm trying to find a video of an old Conan O'Brian spoof of Jay-Z's 'Big Pimpin'.

I know, it's an odd request. LOL

It was several years ago (or more??)... a spoof of Conan O'Brian in a subway train, shirtless playing the guitar to Jay-Z's Big Pimpin.

Any ideas???

It was a commercial on MTV for their VMA's. I can't remember what year though.

I seriously LOL'd when I saw that.

I can't find the video, but I wanted to mention that Conan's last name is spelled O'Brien (not O'Brian). Hopefully the correct spelling will help your search.

oh, and I'm pretty sure Conan was just in a subway station, not a train.

I don't remember him being shirtless, either.

But I know what you're talking about, and I haven't been able to find it either.

just found this quote (about 3/4 down the page):
There is this commercial for MTV's Video Music Awards that I find absolutely hilarious: There is this guy in a subway, playing a guitar and singing, when along comes Conan O'Brien. Conan gestures that he'd like the guitar so the guy gives it to him; Conan then begins to sing Big Pimpin'! It might not sound very funny but it is! You can now adopt a cartoon Conan! Heh.
this was, this was from sometime before August 2000.
