You know you were wondering about it! Jimmy Kimmel sent a camera crew to Comic-Con to ask cosplayers — that is, people who wear costumes often based on characters from their favorite movies, comics and video games — whether they’ve ever had sex in their costumes. Can you guess who has and who hasn’t? [The Wrap]
I was really sad when Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman broke up in 2009, because I always found them to be hilarious and endearing together, a pairing that brought the masses humor and joy. Without their coupling, we wouldn’t have had “Fucking Matt Damon” or “Fucking Ben Affleck,” you guys. Well, luckily their split was a relatively amicable one, but it must have been awhile since they saw each other, because Sarah brought a bunch of stuff Jimmy left at her house before their breakup. Hilarious awkwardness ensues. Watch part one above and part two after the jump! Keep reading »
Last night, Kanye West, clad in a serene light blue tunic, sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to clear the air over their whole “rap feud.” It was … interesting. First of all, Kanye, at one point, pronounces his own name the way the Kardashians do — Kan-YE. What’s up with that? After some early groveling by Kimmel, Kanye launched into a really long monologue of sorts (above, in two parts) about being taken seriously as a celebrity, the evils of the media, how he’s a creative genius, and, oh yeah, classism. It was really kind of epic and luckily, those busy little robots over at Buzzfeed transcribed the whole joint, which you can read after the jump. Keep reading »
Apple’s latest operating system is divisive to a degree that’s usually reserved for politics. Some love it, some people loathe it, and others … well, it just makes them sick. One of iOS 7′s key differences from previous Apple interfaces is “parallax,” an unnecessary if hypnotizing feature that enables the icons on the screen to shift back and forth with the motions of the actual phone. Many people have reported feeling physically ill, and suffering from nausea and even vertigo as a result of the “aggressive animations.” A quick flick into your Settings will offer you the choice to turn parallax off, but why bother when you could try Stop Looking At Your Fucking Phone Every 5 Seconds? [Gawker]
So, this week on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Jimmy made a little fun of a recent Kanye West interview the rapper did with BBC Radio One. After showing some of the clips from the interview, Kimmel had children act out the interview, you know, to illustrate how ridiculous Kanye sounds.
Kanye was not having it. He spent yesterday evening tweeting his distaste for Kimmel IN ALL CAPS. Keep reading »
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a fucking genius. Let me lay it out for you: the actress and comedienne, perhaps best known as “Seinfeld”‘s Elaine, has received four Emmys, a Golden Globe, and five Screen Actors Guild Awards. She’s the only woman to have won the Emmy for three separate comedy series, and is also the most nominated actress in Emmy Award history. So yeah, Julia kills it, really kills it, and she continues to kill it, most recently on “Veep” … and in this brand new meltdown clip, which Jimmy Kimmel released into the wild.
Now, YouTube and similar video sites all but runneth over with film of people freaking out in public. Kimmel speculates that this readily-available resource has driven actual actors and performers to raise the bar, because if you can watch tens of thousands of regular people having a meltdown, shouldn’t entertainers then be able to determine the best means by which to simulate the most realistic meltdown possible? Julia throws down the gauntlet with this hilarious, amazing, unsettlingly lifelike freakout about gluten-free food, juxtaposed perfectly with real clips of Regular People Freaking Out. (Jimmy is quick to clarify that this video is, in fact, a joke. Remember what happened last time?) It’s unclear whether or not the employees and other customers were in on the joke, but judging by the shocked looks on their faces, I would assume not. [Crushable]
