Matt Damon, Ben Affleck among celebs taking blame for Deflategate
With the Super Bowl only a few days away, New England Patriots fans are doing their best to put the Deflategate scandal behind them, and Jimmy Kimmel found a few Bostonians who were willing to take the fall to let their team focus on the big game.
The video starts out with some run-of-the-mill Bostonians claiming they were the "Locker Room Guy" who briefly disappeared into a Gillette Stadium washroom with the footballs, but then we see some high profile Boston fans show up to take credit for the scandal.
Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Chris Evans and others all swear that they, and not their handsome hero Tom Brady, were the ones who decided to deflate the footballs before the AFC championship game.
Stick around until the end to watch Kimmel engaging in his favorite pastime, being really mean to Matt Damon.
