Ben Affleck Smuggled Matt Damon Onto Jimmy Kimmel Live After the Oscars

Ben Affleck Matt Damon Jimmy Kimmel 2016

As you may or may not be aware, Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon have had a bit of a feud going on for several years now, and Matt is regularly excluded from being a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live. This has led to all kinds of shenanigans, from Matt taking over the show to Jimmy and Matt attending couples therapy to work through their problems. Last night after the Oscars, even though Matt was nominated for Best Actor for The Martian, Jimmy still didn't invite him on the show. He did, however, invite Matt's BFF Ben Affleck. So obviously they concocted a plan.

That plan involved Ben smuggling Matt onto the show like a store-bought bag of Twizzlers into a movie theater. The only difference of course being that Matt Damon is much larger and heavier than a bag of Twizzlers. But Ben Affleck has all that Batman muscle now, not to mention he recently had his Jennifer Garner removed, so he's a lot stronger and more agile these days. So strong and agile that he was able to carry Matt onto the stage stuffed in the front of his trench coat. Just looking at it and imagining it from Matt's perspective makes me claustrophobic.

Unfortunately Matt's time on the show was limited, as he was quickly escorted away. Ben and Jimmy then continued with the interview, and Ben got in quite the diss against Matt: “I've been figuratively carrying him for years.” Cue '90s sitcom style “ooooooh!” sound. He also did a great parody of his and Matt's Oscar speech for Good Will Hunting by saying he thanked Boston eight times in a row: “We want to thank Boston, and um, Boston…” Yeah, that sounds about right.
