Conan O'Brien Fights Back Tears in Moving Farewell Speech (Watch It Before NBC Pulls It!)

Oh my freaking god, did you see Conan O'Brien's final goodbye on The Tonight Show last night? He got choked up while sincerely expressing his gratitude towards...NBC! After all, it is where he's spent most of his professional career (first as a writer on Saturday Night Live, then as host of Late Night). He then made a moving plea: "Please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism. It's my least favorite quality, and it doesn't lead anywhere." It was hard for me not to get a bit choked up myself—and I never really watched Conan. What a classy farewell. What a classy guy. Watch:

(Actually, if NBC pulls this clip (for some reason, it's not available on NBC's official site), you can probably see it here.)
