VIDEO: Jimmy Kimmel skit punks young Bears fan

By Will Brinson

If you haven't seen the "Jimmy Kimmel Live" skit "I Gave My Kids a Terrible Christmas Present," you're missing out on life. The premise is pretty simple: parents give their kids crappy Christmas gifts early and videotape them opening said presents and then reacting in a hysterical manner.

It's a cruel and horrible thing to do to kids*, as long as their yours. If they're someone else's kids, well, everything's fair game. Via Sarah Spain comes a clip that didn't make the cut for Kimmel's show, but is absolutely outstanding from an NFL fan perspective.

The setup: the family involved are all huge Bears fans and the dad orders his daughter a jersey from the NFL store for Christmas. It is not a Bears jersey, and she reacts in a violent, angry, tearful and nearly obscene manner. It's really quite sublime.

DeSean Jackson: 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' intern

Posted by Will Brinson

In case you haven't heard, there's this little NFL lockout going on. Sure, it's being covered up by the ongoing NCAA Tournament and impending MLB Opening Day, but at some point, we're going to run out of "Well, there's still a few months until football's supposed to start" time, and people are going to panic.

"People" there includes "NFL players," too, who are going to need jobs. Some have already found work, though. Like DeSean Jackson, who's interning on "Jimmy Kimmel, Live!"

Good skit all around, huh? I mean, the "slamming a fragile object during a touchdown celebration" bit is kind of overdone, but Jackson's funny enough during his dancing and touching of random female usher's faces for me to give it my comedic seal of approval.

It is kind of interesting, though, to see that Jackson's not sporting an Eagles jersey, isn't it?
