American Express launches Twitter contest for sold-out Conan tour

If you didn’t get a chance to nab seats for Conan O’Brien’s “Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television” tour (or the tickets were out of your price range), you might get a second chance to win them on Twitter.

American Express has found a clever way to capitalize on Conan’s Twitter popularity, directing users to post the following message on their feeds for the chance to win tickets in New York, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, or Los Angeles:

Hey @americanexpress I want to be with Coco in [your closest city]. Pick me! #amexConan

Coco alluded to the contest in a tweet yesterday:

Are you a fan of up close awkwardness? If so, win a chance to meet me courtesy of @americanexpress. Details tomorrow. Good luck, dad.

As promised, he announced the contest today:

Want to see an insecure celebrity avoid eye contact? Meet me courtesy of Amex: .

Only one tweet will be counted towards the contest per the official rules, so don’t go spamming your friends with entries. If you’re planning on entering, remember to follow @americanexpress, too, or your entry won’t count. The contest is running from now until Monday, at 11:59pm ET, and five winners will be randomly selected and announced via Twitter on Tuesday, March 23rd at 12:00pm EST.
