Conan really wants that street named for him

west-raymer-conan.jpgConan O'Brien has sweetened, so to speak, his request for the city of Los Angeles to rename a segment of West Raymer Street beside the train tracks in Van Nuys. He wants it to be Conan O'Brien Boulevard because, after all, Chicago named a street for Oprah Winfrey. Since Mayor Villaraigosa hasn't responded to last month's request, O'Brien has added some signage, landscaping and a velvet rope to spruce up the blight a little. Video after the jump.
