Most people would be absolutely elated to speak with Academy Award winner Matt Damon, but apparently late night host Jimmy Kimmel is not most people.

Over the past several years, the late-night host has had a running gag where he ends the show with his now-famous, "Our apologies to Matt Damon. We ran out of time." It has become a much-beloved joke as seen in the above video -- a collection of occasions in which Kimmel has ran the bit. (It also inspired Sara Silverman's famous viral video 'I'm [Bleeping] Matt Damon.') Yet as funny as they all are, none is as good as when Damon was actually sitting directly next to him.

Don't worry -- it was staged. Matt Damon is just that good!
