PROTIP: Conan is an alligator

Conan is… is a series of YTMND sites based on Conan O’Brien’s “alligator snapping jaw” motion on Late Night with Conan O’Brien during an interview with Matthew McConaughey.

In typical fashion, the fad cross-bred with other popular internet memes and fashioned into newer, stronger YTMNDs.

Music Used

The song typically used in this YTMND fad is called Straight Ahead by Tube & Berger and featuring Chrissie Hynde.


On April 17, 2005, user Dasyati uploaded the site Conan is…AN ALLIGATOR to YTMND. It now has over 530,000 views.

  • YouTube mirror:

[The original episode that the GIF was derived from is currently unknown]

This site spawned many other sites editing the GIF image, along with sites having “Conan is…” in their titles.

The first YTMND to parody the original appears to be Conan is…..the end of the world? by Billson. However, the first spin-off to become very popular was Conan is…A STAPLER! by user nibbzious.


“Conan is…” also inspired other similar fads involving Conan.

Some of these fads include:

According to YTMND Wiki,… this fad, along with other Conan fads, are rarely seen today. However, because “Conan is…” is considered to be one of the most classic YTMND fads, it is a stable in YTMND Conglomerates. Conan is also often seen mashed-up with other fads.
