Monday Night Video – Jimmy Kimmel’s Father’s Day Prank

I’m not a big fan of pranks unless:
a) the target is not harmed, humiliated, or hurt (emotionally or otherwise), or…
b) the target deserves to be harmed, humiliated or hurt.
Jimmy Kimmel, on the contrary, is a big fan of pranks. Adam Carolla told a story on The Howard Stern Radio Show last week about how he Carolla accompanied Dixie Chick Natalie Maines to the Emmys as a non-romantic companion. Afterward, Kimmel tricked Carolla into thinking that Maines was stalking Carolla, which came to a head with Carolla calling and berating Maines for the many romantic overtures that she had not made.
Both Maines and Kimmelseem to have found this funny, and I’m hoping that all the participants in the following felt that way as well, although I think the guy at the end gets off easy by not having his face sprayed with the hose.
