Incredible courage has been displayed across the world at the behest of one of the late night Jimmys.
This particular Jimmy (the Kimmel one) previously challenged parents to something called the "I Turned Off the TV During Fortnite" challenge. As the name indicates, the task at hand revolves around turning off the TV while someone is playing Fortnite.
"I've been looking forward to this all week," Jimmy told his audience during Thursday's show. "Monday night on the show, I issued a new YouTube challenge and the challenge was I'd like you to sneak up on your kids while they're playing Fortnite—the kids are nuts for this Fortnite—and turn off the TV. I asked, many of you answered, and with that said, here are the results."
Thankfully, the challenge resulted in a few utterances of the word "f*ck" and video footage of at least one parent fumbling to turn off the TV. Catch the full thing up top while pondering if this could/should become a regular tradition a la this particular Jimmy's reliably great Halloween candy challenge.
Fortnite crossed back over into music-related headlines earlier this month with reports that 2 Milly had hit Epic Games with legal action. According to Milly, the game exploits his popular Milly Rock dance without credit. "Epic has consistently sought to exploit African-American talent in particular in Fortnite by copying their dances and movements," Carolynn Beck, Milly's attorney, said in a statement. Beck also cited other alleged examples of similar exploitation including Snoop Dogg and Will Smith.
