The piece has even gained national exposure around major media outlets such as The New York Times and The Consumerist.

“Support for Mr. O’Brien seemed to spread virally, through gestures like the reblogging of this image by the artist Mike Mitchell. The image shows Mr. Conan standing triumphantly, orange hair aglow, with the caption “I’m with CoCo,” one of Mr. O’Brien’s nicknames,” Brain Stetler writes for The New York Times.

and The Consumerist adds,

“Our inbox has spoken: due to popular reader demand, it’s time to harness the power of the EECB, the executive email carpet bomb, for its most important mission ever: saving the Conan O’ Brien show.”

Rounding it out, Rainn tweeted about the piece earlier in the day, and the SoulPancake feed has been buzzing for over 10 hours. This has turned into hard conversions for the site. You should follow Sir Mitchell on twitter here. You never know when he’ll drop the next internet sensation.
