Seth Meyers also remembers the old 'Late Night' host by recreating show's 1982 opening credits
Jimmy Kimmel had his wish granted at the "Fight of the Century" when he got to join Manny Pacquiao's entourage just like Justin Bieber has been part of rival boxer Floyd Mayweather's crew. And just like Bieber, Jimmy wore a fedora, as well as some gold chains and a Pac-Man shirt (in tribute to Manny's nickname) eating little Floyd Mayweather, Jr. heads instead of dots.
He is the Jimmy who makes kids cry. Who still cracks up at the thought of a crank call. Enjoys pissing off his own writers. Loves hoaxes and pranks and pushes them further than most people do. But no, seriously, he is a super nice guy. Not as nice as that other Jimmy, but nice.
