Sean Cole of Vice interviewed a handful of people responsible for bringing to life one of my all-time favourite pieces of media, but one voice is missing: Conan O’Brien’s. O’Brien wrote the episode and, according to Cole’s reporting, no adjustments to his draft of the monorail song were made. It was that good. And, apparently, it “haunts [O’Brien] to this day”.
There are worse things to be haunted by than one of the single greatest episodes of American television.
