Every now and then, Jimmy Kimmel issues a challenge to his viewers to do something craaaaazy and then film it and submit the video on YouTube — such as his reliably hilarious yearly prank in which he asks parents to tell their children they ate all of their Halloween candy. With last week’s massive snowstorm on the east coast, the host decided to mix things up with this “Hey Jimmy Kimmel, I Served a Snowball in Bed” challenge, which is very much how it sounds: people hand delivered a snowball (or in some cases, a larger quantity of snow) to their loved ones while they unknowingly slept.
