Fucking Celebrities

posted by on February 25 at 7:40 AM

I’m going to guess that I’m supposed to dislike Jimmy Kimmel, so I’ll probably get in trouble for defying the orthodoxy here, but fuck it, this is kinda funny.

First there was this pretty funny smack from his hot-ass girlfriend:

Then, last night, there was this star-studded, gay-chicken-referencing response:

I think I would have found this a lot funnier if I had not read the previous post.

How is this different from a blackface/mintrel show?

Does anyone else find this incredibly distasteful and offensive?

Posted by tj | February 25, 2008 8:37 AM

Well, yes.

But I laughed anyway.

Well laugh all you want but don't you think these kind of mocking attitudes lead to situations like the "The Sunshine Hate" piece below?

Blackface? Incredibly distateful & offensive? Really???????

Sarah Silverman is not anything better than average, both in the humor and looks department.

oh man, i hope that's tj jourian!

I thought this was funnier than not (especially once it got to the celebrity chorus), but it would've been 10,000 times funnier if Jimmy and Ben had just dressed and behaved like themselves. The fey mincing fucked it up.

To paraphrase Penn Jillette: Of course it's offensive; that's what makes it funny.

Even if it sets the cause of gay rights back five years, the Harrison Ford cameo was still worth it.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | February 25, 2008 11:43 AM

5 years ey? Is it worth the price? Ask Larry King.

Posted by tj | February 25, 2008 12:04 PM

Hilarious. Not as funny as Sarah's bit, but pretty damn funny. And offensive.

Why should Kimmel not be funny to people on here, you work for a publication that's immature, pointless, gay and funny, just like Kimmel often is.

I didn't think it was that funny until the Josh Groban part hit. Then it made me laugh. As opposed to the Matt Damon video, which I laughed through most of.

I think what astonishes me most is that Jimmy Kimmel could call in favors from all those much-more-famous (or at least more respected) celebrities.

This video was top-notch cameo porn (for all People and pinkisthenewblog readers, closeted and uncloseted) and pretty fucking hilarious, although it did make me feel guilty after a while...

nowhere near as bad as Chuck & Larry, though, which made me physically ill.

@16 - I agree, it was the appearance of Huey Lewis and Josh Groban that did it for me.

*sigh* I must be out of the loop. What was distasteful/offensive about these videos? (I was kinda bored by Kimmel's response, so I skipped through it, so please let me know what I'm missing.)

There is no reason to hate Jimmy Kimmel. The guy is funny and seems pretty cool. That show has always been much better than people say/think it is.
