Matt Damon And Ben Affleck Take Responsibility For #Deflategate on 'Jimmy Kimmel'


While some football fans have pointed the finger at New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick for the #deflategate scandal, Massachusetts-raised actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are taking full responsibility.

The two, in their best Boston accents, revealed their stories behind what really happened to those deflated footballs that could have helped the Patriots get the AFC championship game win in a hilarious new spoof featured on Thursday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live!

The "I am the Locker Room Guy" video also features more than half a dozen other Bostonian celebrities including John Krasinski, Chris Evans and Steven Tyler.

Kimmel introduces the skit by telling us that the NFL is reportedly focusing on a Patriots locker room attendant to see if he is the one to blame.

"When there's a high-profile crime, all of a sudden a bunch of people come forward and claim they did it, like when the Lindbergh baby was kidnapped, there was a group— a bunch of people confessed. Same with the Black Dahlia murders," Kimmel said.

He then adds that he is not sure if these people are just protecting Brady or if they are mentally ill. He then rolls the clips.

Damon tells a story about how he used the football to get some air for his nephew who was suffering from bronchitis.

Affleck, who called himself Ryan "Salty" Flanagan, said he was taking responsibility. "Let me ask you a question: Who are you gonna believe: Tom Brady, the greatest man in all humanity? Or a bunch of a****** on Twitter?" he asked.

Krasinski, who says he is a tutor for Brady's children, tells a story about saving people's lives. "I start sucking air out of the regulation balls in order to save those people's lives," he said. "I saved 17 people's lives. Tom Brady had nothing to do with it. But let me tell you something: If he did, he would have done the exact same thing. Because he's a g****** hero."

After paying tribute to Brady's lips and "piercing blue eyes,"  the spoof ends with Damon saying he acted alone. Becoming the butt of another joke, Kimmel tells him he acted alone "because nobody wants to act with you."
