The late-night host, 49, hired a tour guide to bring the unsuspecting group of tourists into the Dolby Theatre during the live show. The tourists thought they were going to an exhibit, but instead were led out into the audience, where they got to rub shoulders with some of the biggest A-listers in Hollywood.

Kimmel chimed in: “He’s Denzel, so it’s legal. There’s Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux. Jen, do you have a wedding gift for them? Maybe you can give them something from your purse. Justin, you give them something, too, will you? How about the sunglasses, Jen? You don’t need those, it’s dark.” Aniston gave the sunglasses to the woman, who put them on.

The tour bus customers snapped photos as they followed behind Kimmel. They then passed Jeff Bridges, Moonlight’s Mahershala Ali, Casey Affleck and Jason Bateman. “Hey, we got a traffic jam back there. Come on! Next stop is Jason Bateman’s house, OK?” Kimmel asked. “Jason, is the code still 1987?”

The audience got a kick out of the skit, and so did viewers at home. “Um, I’m seeing my friend Yulree Chun on the Oscars RIGHT NOW,” one person tweeted about their friend who was on the tour double-decker bus. “Her Instagram is about to be really dope. #Oscars.”
