Former talk show host Larry King announced during a taping of Dinner with the Kings (airing on Sunday) that he doesn’t believe in the afterlife and therefore would like to be cryogenically frozen when he dies.
King is joined on the show by various A-List celebrities and athletes including Conan O’Brien, Tyra Banks, Shaquille O’Neal, Seth MacFarlane, Jack Dorsey, Quincy Jones and Russell Brand. The stars came together to discuss personal issues that interest them.
Speaking on the show King told the show’s guests:
“I want to be frozen on the hope that they’ll find whatever I died of and bring me back … because I don’t think I’m going anywhere.”
After making his statement Larry King attempts to change the subject until Conan O’Brien chimed in:
“Listen, two things just happened,” and “You revealed you want your head chopped off and frozen, and Russell Brand went into your wife’s room and stole your underwear. And now you’re moving on with your prepared questions.”
The second comment from O’Brien involved Russell Brand who went into King’s bedroom and raided his underwear drawer for the shows taping.
Perhaps Larry King can be the first floating head in the real word version of our very own Futurama.
Do you think someone can be “saved” from death in the future if they are first frozen in a large holding tank for safe storage? It all seems a bit silly to me and an awfully cold way to spend an eternity.
