New York: Conan O`Brien is building the hype for his upcoming TBS talk show with the debut of a 24-hour ‘Coco Cam’ online that shows live video from his office.

The ‘Coco Cam’ is trained on an office stairwell. Its first-day highlights included a dancing man in a taco costume and another who gave a dramatic reading from behind a podium while passers-by threw things at him.

The first hour had an aerobics session with women in 1980s-era workout gear.

O`Brien, former NBC ‘Tonight’ show host, is counting down the days toward his Nov. 8 debut. Other promotional highlights have included a blimp with ‘Conan’ that has drifted around stadiums during Major League Baseball playoff games that TBS is broadcasting.
