Jimmy Kimmel challenged a 2-year-old boy to a basketball shooting competition and ended up losing. Seriously.
The story begins on Feb. 3 when Joseph Ashby uploaded a video to YouTube of his young son, Titus, making trick basketball shots. The video (seen here) went viral and has nearly 9 million views. Titus was invited to the “Today” show to shoot baskets, and Kimmel called out the kid for stinking. That criticism led Ashby to film a video challenging Kimmel to face Titus. Kimmel accepted and invited the Ashby family out to his show.
Kimmel then faced Titus in a shooting competition where they each had 45 seconds to make as many baskets as they could. The 2-year-old beat Kimmel 10-6 in the competition, which aired on Thursday’s show.
After an embarrassing display like that, I only have one question: Did Kimmel lose on purpose? That’s pretty much all he has left to say at this point.
Things were so bad that at one point Kimmel even went over to block Titus’ shot!
