Conan will do “Conan” with orange skin if you donate $100,000

Isn’t Conan O’Brien orange enough already? Orange you tired of asking silly questions like that?

Let’s just stick to the facts. Comedy Central’s Night of Too Many Stars airs on Sunday, Oct. 21, 2012. It’s the main cause of Robert Smigel, and funds raised go toward autism research and programs supporting families with autistic children. Smigel was the original head writer for Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

So this time around, O’Brien has made a simple vow: “If $100,000 is raised for “Night of Too Many Stars,” Conan pledges to do his show while spray-tanned bright orange.” Roll the clip!

Note: The money must be raised by Oct. 21 for Conan to follow through with it. If you’re donating via cell phone, you can text CONAN to 50555 to give $10 and reply YES when prompted
