Conan O'Brien's one-minute, $1.5 million comedy bit.

Conan explains: "Until NBC yanks us of the air, we can pretty much do whatever we wan't. ... And they have to pay for it."

Note that the clip doesn't come from Hulu or NBC. Somehow, the network didn't want to post this online.

UPDATE: Mediaite reports that the car was borrowed, and that licensing for Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction" cost up to $50,000.

No matter. O'Brien followed up Thursday with new character Mine That Bird, the Kentucky Derby winner last year. The horse was said to be wearing a Snuggie made of mink and also was watching restricted NFL footage. (Alleged) price tag: $4.8 million.
