It only takes five minutes until you completely love how Jimmy Kimmel totally vaporized Jay Leno on Jay’s own show. WHAT was Leno thinking in doing his ten at ten segment with Kimmel? Who knows. We doubt this is what he’d expected. Which makes it all the more delicious to watch. Kimmel does not hold back. The first question Jimmy is just easing into things, it’s harmless really. I mean, who hasn’t made fun of Leno’s chin? But then we get going around 2:22. And then the fun just never, ever stops. I watched this live when it aired and watching it again was just as great.
Jay: “If you got to interview anyone in the world, who would it be?”
Jimmy: “You and Conan. Together. And if Conan won’t do it… Just you. In fact, I’d like to do 12 and 12 with you tomorrow night if you’d be willing to do that. Because I have a lot of questions to ask you about this whole thing. I don’t think people care about what I have to say…I think they’re much more interested in what’s going on with your life.”
Jay: I agree with that. Tomorrow night? Ah, sorry. Tomorrow night’s bad for me.
Jay: “You’re known for pranks… what’s the best prank you’ve ever pulled?”
Jimmy: “I think the best prank I ever pulled was… I told a guy that five years from now ‘I’m going to give you my show’. And then when the five years came, I gave it to him and then I took it back almost instantly. It was hilarious.”
Jay: Ever order anything off the TV?
Jimmy: Like NBC ordered your show off the TV?
And that my friends, is a BAZINGO.
UPDATE: Psh, Leno talked last night and now I feel bad for them both. Man.
