I hate Jimmy Kimmel. There's something about him that rubs me the wrong way. I don't find him particularly funny and it bothers me that he has his own platform in a late night program to tell mediocre jokes and be a lame TV host. This past year I was able to solidify my dislike for him after watching his attack on Emily Gould on live television. I vowed to never watch his show again.
Gould, a former Gawker.com editor, appeared on a 2007 Larry King Live episode for which Kimmel was filling in as a host. Kimmel embarrassed her on the air, which I found pointless and hypocritical (particularly because I like Gould, her writing and at the time, Gawker). From that moment on I was sure: I hate Jimmy Kimmel.
That being said, I was hesitant to showcase the video below, because I'd rather not discuss Jimmy Kimmel or direct any more eyeballs his way -- but this clip was worth mentioning his name on my blog. Sarah Silverman, Kimmel's long time (and talented) girlfriend made him a music video as a tribute to the fact that Kimmel's late night show has been on the air for 5 years (?!)
She's funny, and the cameo appearance by Matt Damon is classic. Enjoy.
