- This page is about the "Conan Alligator" fad. If you were looking for Future Conan/Conan is insane, see Future Conan.
Conan is...AN ALLIGATOR is a YTMND by user Dasyati created on April 17, 2005 and is the original inspiration for the Conan is... fad.
The Conan is... fad normally uses an (appropriately edited) Animated GIF of Conan O'Brien, host of Late Night with Conan O'Brien, waving his arms about. Conan was attempting to imitate the opening and closing motion of an alligator's jaws during an interview with Matthew McConaughey. Also commonly accompanying the YTMND is the song "Straight Ahead" by Tube & Berger.
This YTMND was the inspiration for the TIGER Handheld fad becoming prevalent on YTMND.
