Codebreaker

Conan O’Brien put his studio up for rent on Airbnb

John Moe Sep 7, 2011

Airbnb is becoming an increasingly buzzworthy internet property. It’s where you can rent or sublet out your place when you’re not using it. It’s getting a lot of investment along with a few controversies (as renters sometimes trash the place or steal stuff). Conan hopped on the opportunity for a few laughs with this listing:

Sleeping accommodations include a celebrity-grazed sleeper sofa and additional air mattress (needs repair). Linens provided, but recommend bringing your own for undisclosed reasons. Great for families (children 16+) looking to relax in over 25,000 square feet of musty warehouse space. Includes use of 40 ton industrial air conditioning system, 25 LCD television monitors (no HBO), and fully stocked kitchenette with intern. Shower must be shared with guest bands. Free Wi-Fi.
