Comedian Conan O’Brien is one of the funniest and most popular comedians in the United States. But recently, he called out anime character Detective Conan for apparently ripping him off. Of course, this is all in good fun as he aired his “grievances” on his TBS TVshow, CONAN:

The comedian offered up a few comparisons between him and the anime character. First of all, he pointed out that both of them have skinny legs, as well as distinctive hair, always wears a suit, always asks people questions, and is also cartoonish. But most importantly, Conan pointed out that both him and Detective Conan are men trapped in a child’s body…

Conan O’Brien then went on to talk about how popular anime Conan is, from trains to statues, to even having a town named after him, Conan Town. And finally, the late night talk show host demanded that the “Japanese version of him” pay about 3 trillion yen to the “More Famous Conan”. He’s just kidding of course… or is he?
