I’ll be honest; I was never a fan of Jimmy Kimmel’s jump to being a late night talk show host after his initial run on The Man Show. Kimmel’s form of comedy just doesn’t mesh well to late night and, quite frankly, lacks that former magic when he was paired with Adam Carolla. But, I digress, as Kimmel’s Halloween episode of his late night show was quite special. Kimmel’s crew dressed up as various video characters with the titular host as Donkey Kong.
Now, I love the concept of the show paying homage to gaming’s most memorable characters (yes, Tetris blocks do count as they have feelings). Jimmy Fallon’s Late Show regularly has Reggie Fils-Aime and Cliff Bleszinski as guests to promote their respected products, so it’s always welcome to see late night shows pimp out the things we love. Still, one thing to observe: How uncomfortable is that Donkey Kong costume, Jimmy?
