What you’re about to witness above could be misconstrued as cruel and unusual punishment. But, in reality, it’s just late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel having a laugh thanks to some loyal viewers answering his call.
For those who don’t watch “Jimmy Kimmel Live” — and that’s probably a good number of you — he’s been doing this YouTube challenge bit for a little while now. And we like it. (See: “I Told My Kids I Ate Their Halloween Candy” and “I Gave My Kids A Terrible Present”)
This one is called “I Unplugged The TV During The Game”. It’s people unplugging their TVs during a crucial moment of Super Bowl XLVI. Try not to overreact, OK?
Best parts: Most people are sneaky about this, but the guy at 1:58 lingers next to the TV and shamelessly unplugs it in front of everybody at the party; there’s also a pretty funny Christmas tree scene at 2:11.
On a side note: What self-respecting Jets fan still wears a Brett Favre jersey? What the heck?!?
