Oprah Winfrey left an audience member on U.S. TV's Jimmy Kimmel Live! speechless on Wednesday (15Aug13) by gifting them with a new car.
The iconic TV host was promoting her new movie, Lee Daniels' The Butler, on comedian Jimmy Kimmel's late night talk show when she suddenly got the feeling to give away a Ford Fusion Energi Hybrid, donated by Ford bosses.
As a bemused Kimmel looked on, she told the crowd, "I just got that feeling again, I get that feeling, you know. I really didn't want it to happen here."
Pointing to a woman in the studio audience, she said, "You, you in the blue. You right there. You. Come up here a minute. I want to say this to you. 'You, you get a car! You get a car!'"
The woman, named only as Britney, was left stunned by the grand gesture, even though Kimmel appeared to be unaware that Winfrey was going to give away a car and thought she was joking.
Winfrey assured the presenter there really was a car to be given away as Britney was led out to her new vehicle.
The media mogul became famous for her gift-giving during her stint as host of The Oprah Winfrey Show - on the season 19 premiere episode, when she gave the entire audience cars.
After her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Winfrey took to her Twitter.com page and wrote, "@jimmykimmel THAT was fun! I don't know what came over me! #yougetaCar (sic)."
