It’s not often you can surprise a star like Jimmy Kimmel, but with a little help from his parents, we managed to pull off a little pre-Oscar prank.

This Sunday, Jimmy will be hosting the Academy Awards for the first time. He sat down for a satellite interview from Los Angeles.

We could see him, but he couldn’t see us. He also didn’t know we were bringing in his parents to ask a few questions of their own.

We asked Joan and Jim Kimmel to tease Jimmy a little about his famous “feud” with Matt Damon.

Once Jimmy realized what we were up to, he told his parents to spend the day with us.

They did and let’s just say, this is one fun and funny family to be around.
