Matt Damon has been taking shit from Jimmy Kimmel for years now, with Kimmel's ongoing joke being that they ran out of time to have the A-list actor on the show. In a new video, Damon takes his revenge on the talk show host, tying him up in what appears to be some sort of office basement.

After showing clip after clip of Kimmel saying that he "ran out of time," Damon, dressed in a hooded sweatshirt and speaking directly into the camera, says, "Tonight, you didn't run out of time for me, did you Jimmy? No, I ran out of time for you. Is there...a new host in town?"

It's not clear where the gag is going, but we have to assume we'll see Matt Damon on Kimmel's show sometime very soon.
