Jimmy Kimmel and his neighbors, actress Emily Blunt and her husband John Krasinski, have taken their annual pranks to the extreme.
Emily appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote her latest film, Into the Woods, when they shared their expensive Christmas pranks pulled on one another.
Emily and John have outdone themselves, taking the crazy pranks on Jimmy Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney to new heights.
On Monday night, Emily and Jimmy Kimmel took the time to explain their Christmas ‘fun’.
The 47-year-old host revealed it all started back in 2012, revealing, “Three years ago John and Emily broke into the house – I was at work and made the mistake of giving them a key to my house – and they broke into my house unlawfully and set up [Santa Claus and snowman] Christmas light display. Which we found to our puzzlement.”
Jimmy retaliated by buying a neon insurance sign and leaving it on their house and then the following year. Emily and John then planted a zombie dug into Kimmel’s and his wife’s garden.
Kimmel explained, “So my wife and I saw their zombie and raised them a 26 foot tall inflatable reindeer complete with non-inflatable reindeer poop”.
Jimmy figured he needed to step up his game, saying, “Last year I decided to end this once and for all by taking it to an entirely different level. While John and Emily were out, we gift wrapped their house. I sent the whole staff over to their house and we really went to town. We had toys, candy canes and snow. We wrapped all their doors and windows, and then John came home from work and he was surprised…We had carolers. You can’t go beyond that. Once you gift wrap somebody’s house, it can’t be topped”.
In the days before Emily’s appearance on the show, the 31-year-old star and her husband did a new prank each night.
Emily could not stop laughing, clearly enjoying the pranks, even though they were expensive.
No doubt next week Kimmel will unveil his even bigger prank in retaliation.
