The long-running "feud" between Matt Damon and late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel reached new heights earlier this month when Damon shot a video in which Kimmel's comedian girlfriend, Sarah Silverman, declared she was "fucking Matt Damon." Immediately after the Oscars last night, Kimmel fired back with a truly epic effort called "I'm fucking Ben Affleck," which included appearances from celebrities like Harrison Ford, Cameron Diaz, Don Cheadle, Robin Williams and Huey Lewis, to name just a few. The Kimmel-Damon fight is, of course, wholly manufactured, but at least has been consistently funny, starting with Kimmel's regular end-of-show gag, "Apologies to Matt Damon, we've run out of time," and extending through to Damon's on-air tantrum about getting bumped and two gags involving Kimmel's special correspondent, Guillermo. Kimmel's latest Ben Affleck video takes the joke to new lengths -- and new heights in the art of free PR. [GAWKER]

Brad Pitt delivering the FedEx was the best. And the Robin Williams water/cum spray.

Peter Brady, aka Christopher Knight appears briefly in the chorus. And I think that's Pat Benatar at the very beginning of the chorus.

thank god kimmell found comedy! It took a long time. Sad that it took Sara to show how to make people smile!

Clear case of going to the well too many times. Taking the joke too far. Nice that so many celebrities show up to support the host of a show whose ratings are in the toilet.

Boy, the bar for comedy here has been set exceedingly low.

kimmel is not funny. how tough is it for you to recycle/rework a joke that got dropped on you. "let's see, how about if we sub ben for matt in the song?" anyway. watching kimmel try to make funnies is like watching old people fuck.

stupid shit. waste of time.

"Front and center (and first) in the "We Are the World"-style vocal session contained in the video is legendary rocker Joan Jett, who sings in a loud and proud solo that 'you can't stop this love affair,' then lets loose with a barrage of pelvic thrusts and bleeped lyrics. The video also stars, among others, Robin Williams, Cameron Diaz, Don Cheadle, Rebecca Romijn, Pete Wentz, Macy Gray, Joel and Benji Madden, Lance Bass, Huey Lewis, Meat Loaf, Christina Applegate, Dominic Monaghan, Brad Pitt, Harrison Ford, Josh Groban (possibly the only time Jett and Groban are likely to appear together on a stage) and, of course, Kimmel and Affleck."

"possibly the only time Jett and Groban are likely to appear together on a stage"

Ehh, it looked like Groban was in another stage (the lighting and setting seemed to be remote from the "We Are The World"-like studio).

Also, as much as I enjoyed this more compared to Sarah's video, this proves nothing on how funny Kimmel is. It just goes to show how many celebrities he can convince to join him on trying to "one up" his girlfriend. She's funny, he's got connections.

Ben and Jimmy seem really happy together...

Everyone thinks Josh Groban is oh-so-serious, but this man has the sickest sense of humor, but anyone that takes the time to get to know about him will find out he is not stuffy and serious at ALL! His appearance on here just proves it.............. pure genius!!!!

Posted by Kel b | March 6, 2008 1:44 PM

Genius? I don't think so. Since when is it genius to say the "f" word over and over? His singing is awesome. Now his image is ruined.
