940bkimmel krasinski Watch Emily Blunt and John Krasinski prank Jimmy Kimmels SUV

Jimmy Kimmel has a bit of a rivalry going with Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. Not like the “I’m on television, you’re on the radio” one he has with his former Man Show co-host Adam Carolla (who of course has more to do with cars than the last name he almost shares with a Toyota economy sedan). With Blunt and Krasinski, it’s more of a prank rivalry.

The Hollywood couple, you see, live across the street from Kimmel, and they’re all good friends. But during the holiday season, things get a little competitive. One year they broke into Jimmy’s house and left an illuminated snowman and some sort of santa bear in his foyer. Jimmy retaliated, the Krasinskis escalated, and up and up things went until Jimmy had their entire house wrapped like a gift.

John and Emily weren’t going to leave it at that, though, and took things in a decidedly more automotive direction. They gift-wrapped the host’s BMW X5 and filled it with balls. But they didn’t stop there. You’ll want to watch the footage above to see how things ended, just take note of the roll cage visible as Krasinski-Clause stumbles out of the car in that last scene and remember that, while we couldn’t say no vehicles were actually harmed in the making of this segment, at least it doesn’t appear to have actually been Kimmel’s.

091bcitroen c4 cactus ecoty European jury picks finalists for 2015 Car of the Year

There are countless Car of the Year awards handed out each year, and naturally, Europe has its own way of doing things. Every year, a panel of jurists representing seven publications in seven different languages and seven different countries get together to name their joint Car of the Year. The panel released a list of 32 candidates back in July, and it has now whittled that list down to seven nominees.

The list consists of the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, the Citroën C4 Cactus (shown), the Ford Mondeo, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the Nissan Qashqai, the Renault Twingo and the Volkswagen Passat. Of those seven, only two are available in the US – those being the Mondeo (sold Stateside as the Fusion) and the C-Class. The Passat is an entirely different model in North America, the Qashqai isn’t offered here, Citroën and Renault don’t even participate in our market and the BMW 2 Series is represented here only by the completely different coupe and convertible.

Expect the one and only recipient of the 2015 Car of the Year award to be announced at the Geneva Motor Show this coming March, and while you’re waiting, you can place your guesses for the eventual winner in Comments.
