“I don’t believe in an afterlife…so that means when you die, it’s bye, bye baby,” King said. “So the only fragment of hope is to be frozen, and some day they cure whatever you died of, and you’re back.”
Pointing at O’Brien, King announced that when he goes, he wants to be frozen. Feeling the pressure, Conan shot back: “Why you putting the responsibility on me?” he said, foreshadowing him busting into the hospital and taking a no longer living King to the freezer.
Conan concluded the real reason King wants to be frozen: another TV show named “Larry King Alive.”
Fortunately, King’s First Big Break will be forever documented.
