Oprah Compelled to Give Car Away on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ (Video)

She just can't appear in front of a studio audience without handing out gifts

Oprah Winfrey was in the middle of an interview with Jimmy Kimmel when a familiar feeling came over her: the compulsion to give away a car to an audience member. So, she did.

Winfrey and Kimmel were discussing her "Lee Daniel's The Butler" co-star Forrest Whitaker when Winfrey suddenly said "I just got that feeling again."

Then she pointed at a woman in the audience, "Brittany," and asked her to come forward. A giggling young lady sat next to her, and then this happened:


Down came the confetti as Winfrey whipped out a set of car keys and handed them to very excited Brittany. Kimmel protested that the show didn't have a car to give away, but Guillermo took Brittany outside, and, sure enough, there it was — although it was parked in a tow zone, so hopefully she won't have to go all the way to the LAPD impound to pick it up.
