While no father-son fishing trips are likely, the redhead whose "Conan? Dad?" YouTube video went viral this week did grab the attention of the late night talk show host with which he shares an uncanny resemblance.
Greg Keating — who grew up in Verona — claims Conan O'Brien is his illegitimate father in the spoof that has quickly racked up more than 150,000 views.
"A kid in New Jersey is falsely claiming to be my illegitimate son. For the record, I have three children: Neve, Beckett, and @RonanFarrow," Conan O'Brien Tweeted, taking the opportunity to riff on the relationship between Farrow and his estranged father Woody Allen.
In the video, Keating — the spitting image of a young Conan — delivers the message, "I want to share with you. Grow with you. Dominate late night television with you ... Or, we could just go fishing."
Whether or not he has fame in his veins, he's proven one thing to his professors — how to pull off a publicity stunt.
