Perhaps one of the funniest late-night gimmicks of all time went down last night, as Matt Damon “took over” Jimmy Kimmel Live. Viewers of the highly-popular show know the running gag, in which Kimmel apologizes to the movie star for running out of time before they’re able to welcome him to the guest chair. Of course, that gag slowly started after 2008, when Kimmel’s then-girlfriend Sarah Silverman released her viral video hit “I’m Fucking Matt Damon.”

The opening of last night’s JKL – renamed Jimmy Kimmel Sucks — was genius. In his monologue, Damon states, “I am in command of this show. Tonight, good triumphs over evil. I am Luke Skywalker and Kimmel is the Death Star– Big and round and easily destroyed through his garbage hole.” The entire time, we see Kimmel bound and gagged in the background.

And later in the show, Silverman sits down with Damon to explain what her five-year relationship with Kimmel was like. Spoiler: Includes gross food metaphors
