 Gregory Keating, a New Jersey man, is claiming that he’s the son of show host Conan O’Brien.

Keating, who has red hair and bears a resemblance to O’Brien, released a YouTube clip titled “Conan? Dad?” saying he’s related to him.

“My mother conceived me in 1993 as she worked as a producer for ill-fated ‘NBC News at Sunrise,’ located in 30 Rockefeller Plaza, it was only three floors above the ‘Late Night’ studio. Despite her hard work and dedication, she was fired from her job when she got pregnant,” he said in the video.

He added: “Growing up was a challenge for me; I was born with a full head of red hair.”

He also said that he bears a resemblance to the former President of Finland, Tarja Kaarina Halonen, which is a long-running gag on O’Brien’s show. Keating also says he can’t dance and is awkward with girls.

Keating’s video concludes with him saying that “I want to share with you, grow with you, dominate late-night television with you, together as father and son … Or we could just go fishing.”

A number of people on social media sites have speculated that it’s a viral hoax video created by O’Brien’s team.
