I'm F*%&ing Matt Damon...

Jimmy Kimmel, host of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, a later night American talk show has always made Matt Damon the butt of his jokes.

A bit of history:
Frequently at the end of his show, Kimmel thanks the audience and then adds, "Our apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time."

When Matt Damon did actually appear on the show, Jimmy Kimmel started with a montage of clips showing the numerous times he had said those words, and then gave a very lengthy introduction. When Damon finally appeared on stage, Kimmel apologised and said (you guessed it) “sorry, the show is out of time.” This running joke continued for years on the Kimmel show.

Matt gets revenge.
In January 2008, Kimmel's long-time girlfriend (and fellow comedian) Sarah Silverman announced, via a music video, that she had been "f*%$g Matt Damon." Damon brought up Kimmel's long running gag by telling Kimmel at the end of the video, "Jimmy, we're out of time. Sorry."

This brilliantly catchy tune and very funny music video, won Sarah Silverman an Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics.

Kimmel’s revenge
As Kimmel rightly stated himself, the ‘I’m F%$ing Matt Damon song became an instant Internet hit. Kimmel jokes that it was “bigger than that fat kid with the light saber

After the 2008 Oscars, Kimmel got his ‘revenge’ on Sarah, by showing off his own music video: “I’m F$%ing Ben Affleck”

In addition to Ben Affleck, the video stars some of holiwoods biggest names including Robin Williams, Harrison Ford, Cameron Diaz and even Brad Pitt (as the Pizza Delivery guy). Also look out for Christina Applegate, Don Cheadle, Dominic Monaghan (the guy from Lost), Meat Loaf, Macy Gray, and Josh Groban.
