Last week, we broke a delightfully silly story involving Greg Keating. The 2011 graduate of Verona High School decided to have a bit of fun with the fact that he’s been told, more than once, that he looks like TV talk show host Conan O’Brien.

Keating’s “Conan? Dad?” video went viral, with almost 180,000 viewers since it aired. It probably didn’t hurt that many news outlets, and news viewers, didn’t understand that the whole thing was a glorious spoof and not a genuine claim that Keating is Conan’s illegitimate son. But Philadelphia station WTXF Fox 29 got the joke, and this morning, they got Keating on the air to see if he’s got his “father’s” knack for television work. (Keating is a junior at Temple University in Philly.)

We’ll let you be the judge:
