One of our favorite new holiday season memories borrows from the great Halloween tradition of defacing somebody’s front yard. Specifically, the annual and increasingly elaborate pranks that Jimmy Kimmel plays on his neighbor, Office star John Krasinski and his wife Emily Blunt.
It all started several years ago, when Krasinski and Blunt broke into Kimmel’s home and planted a few big Christmas lawn ornaments (and one Jewish star) in the living room. It ultimately turned out to be a poor choice, because Kimmel has proven himself to be a master prankster, with the rare perk of a national television audience to join in on the laughs.
Last year, Kimmel put a gigantic inflatable reindeer — and a loads of real reindeer turds — on the Krasinski-Blunt lawn. This year, he kept it clean, but no less inconvenient.
At least his victims won’t have to bother with putting up decorations this year.
