After doing an entire show in character as Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel was on Leno’s 10 @ 10 segment last night, and… WOW. I’ve never been a big Kimmel fan, but I approve of his “Humiliate Leno” policy. At one point, Leno asks Kimmel what the best prank he ever pulled was. Kimmel’s response:
“The best prank I ever pulled was I told a guy that—five years from now—I’m gonna give you my show. And then when the five years came, I gave it to him, and then I took it back almost instantly.”
Let’s go to the judges, annnnnnd… yep, that’s a burn. Strangely enough, I could find a YouTube upload from Jimmy Kimmel’s channel, whereas Hulu, which manages all NBC content, told me this video was unavailable. Nice work, NBC. Now people who use the Internet will never find out that Jay Leno sucks! You really are broadcasting masterminds.
(For you busy bodies, there’s an abbreviated video with just the highlights below.)
