Not too long ago, we talked about our very own high school bullies (amongst other high school pains.) I always thought that television host Jimmy Kimmel had a pretty awesome life — it turns out that he’s just like the rest of us. Like Jimmy, I had a few run-ins back in the day with some cruel, cruel peeps. This video may or may not have given me inspiration to confront them.
In last night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jimmy travels back to his hometown to confront his high school bully. Tommy Black a.k.a The Black would rub Jimmy’s face into the cement. That poor soul.
Ultimately, Jimmy proved himself to be a total hero in this video. Not only did he stand up to his arch nemesis (on television!) but he ended the confrontation with a heartwarming hug.
Watch the video here:
Lets face it, very few people consider high school the highlight of their lives. In fact, if you do it’s pretty sad. There’s so much awesome, fun, weird and crazy stuff to experience after you get your diploma. Someone brought up bullies in our office and it inspired us to make this. Not only do you get to see what the ANDPOP staff looked like in high school we share some personal stories about our own experiences. As you can see, not everyone looked as “cool” as they do now.
