I know this one has been kicking around the web for a while, but I got reminded of it yesteday and thought I'd post it for anyone who managed to miss it.
Late-night US talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has had a long-running feud/gag with Bourne film star Matt Damon, and recently his girlfriend Sarah Silverman joined in on the fun.
The saga started when Kimmel used to regularly close his ABC show by "apologising" to Matt Damon that they'd run out of time. (In actual fact, the actor wasn't scheduled to appear on the show).
In September 2006, Damon did finally make a guest appearance on the late-night talk show, to loud applause. However when Damon sat down after a length introduction by Jimmy Kimmel, the host apologised and said he had to end the show because he was out of time...
Damon turned red, and started a bleep-ridden tirade at Kimmel, before storming off the set. The stunt was planned, but Damon's convincing acting left many fans believing he was truly p*ssed!
Kimmel's girlfiend, comedian Sarah Silverman decided to help Damon "get his own back", by shooting a surprise music video to play on Kimmel's 40th birthday celebration show, in which the pair revealed they were "in an intimate relationship" ;-)
