Conan O’Brien, the host of NBC’s The Tonight Show has been engaging in something of a feud with the mayor of Newark, New Jersey. Conan made a joke about Newark, and Mayor Cory Booker retaliated via YouTube.

While Conan has the power of national television behind him, Booker has managed to get a considerable audience for his side of the message as well. He has managed to get over 100,000 views on his YouTube video pages alone. Of course, Conan played clips of his videos on the Tonight Show as well.

Here are a few clips that explain the plot:

It ends with Booker both banning Conan from the entire state of New Jersey, and inviting him at the same time, as well as banning him from Newark’s "sister cities" around the world. Conan has already invited Booker on the show. I’d be very surprised if he did not turn up there.

This feels a bit like a set up on the Tonight Show’s part, but even so, it’s not a bad way to market a show who’s ratings were a bit disappointing (for some reason) after Leno left.

    Well if this is actually a setup for ratings boost, it’s brillant! Not only do you draw attention to the Conan show, not to mention the focus on the State of NJ as well. Either way, I find it very entertaining as well. Now if I only had the time, money, and resources to come up with something like this myself. I wouldn’t have to work so hard to tell people about our Blank T-Shirts and Apparel Club, which by the way is open to the public.
