Conan O'Brien and his writers at the Late Night Show have developed a kinder, gentler version of the violence-laden and much-maligned yet popular video game, Grand Theft Auto 4 which was released a few days ago. The spoof is called Grand Theft Auto for Yuppies and it is pretty funny.

Implications - Violent video games are often credited with harming our society's youth, but comedians have found ample inspiration in these games. In this example, by replacing the gore and pugilism in a violent video game with milquetoast suburban yuppies, Conan O'Brien turned a controversial topic into an over-the-top, ridiculous skit that would get a rise out of late-night viewers.
