Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel Played Off Their Endless Feud for This United Airlines Spoof

Published

United Airlines know how it feels to get bumped from a flight, especially David Dao, who last week suffered a concussion after he was dragged bloody off a plane. Matt Damon knows how this feels—sort of. The actor has been getting “bumped” from Jimmy Kimmel Live! for almost a decade, due to a fake feud with the show’s host.

In a sketch on Tuesday’s episode, Damon appeared as the airline’s new celebrity spokesperson in a television ad—only to break script and take a stand for those who have been “bumped” in all aspects of life.

“I can’t do this anymore,” Damon said. “Because I know what it’s like to get bumped. Trust me—I’ve been getting bumped from Jimmy’s show for the last eight years, and it takes a toll. We’re people, dammit, and we deserve to be treated with dignity—not told night after night, ‘There’s somebody more important, take a hike.’”

The clip naturally ends with a United Airlines employee (played by Kimmel) booting Damon from the ad itself. “You people are animals!” the actor screams, followed by a sample of the disturbing scream from the real-life incident.

“In some cases,” Kimmel cracked, “some people deserve to get bumped.”

Check out how this long-standing feud began.

Warren Beatty’s infamous Oscar mix-up earlier this year deprived audiences of one last Damon/Kimmel feud-related gag at the ceremony. Kimmel was supposed to mock Damon for not winning Best Picture for Manchester by the Sea, for which he served as producer. The film’s lead actor, Casey Affleck, and writer, Kenneth Lonergan (who also directed the film), both won the Academy Award for their respective categories.

However, Kimmel’s latest sketch isn’t the worst thing for the airline. According to Business Insider, American Airlines’ profits are down 69.3% from $313 million in Q1 2016 to $96 million this year.

Kimmel previously poked fun at the United Airlines incident when the story broke last week.
