VIDEO: Jimmy Kimmel Pranks Super Bowl Viewers, Violence Ensues

In the week leading up to Super Bowl XLVI, Jimmy Kimmel challenged his viewers to unplug the TV during a crucial moment in the big game and film the ensuing response. A surprising number of people took him up on his request, so Kimmel showed some of the results on his show on Monday. You can see the video after the jump. What we learn from this -- other than that a surprising amount of people must regularly watch Jimmy Kimmel -- is that sports fans don't much care for these antics.

Highlights of the video (for me, at least):

- Dad wearing Lugz asking someone, "Can you just not touch that?" in a voice that instantly relates what an enormous prick that dude must be.

- Woman using the prank as an opportunity to chastise her fella for not taking down the Christmas tree yet.

- Indignant guy in Brett Favre Jets jersey

- Woman straight-up slugging a dude for turning the game off during the Madonna halftime show.
