Alicia Silverstone and her baby feeding video has received mixed reactions, gone viral, and now, has reached the prankster mind of Jimmy Kimmel.
On Thursday night, the talk show host introduced a new challenge to his viewers, asking participants to tag their videos as Hey Jimmy Kimmel, I Silverstoned My Kids.
Because April fool's day is almost upon us we thought it was a good time to issue one of our now world famous YouTube challenges. This is a fun thing we do, from time to time I encourage those who watch the show to pull a prank on your loved ones, Kimmel said in his monologue.
Kimmel's roundup of the Halloween, Christmas and Super Bowl challenges have raked in more than 29 million, 17 million and 2.6 million viewers, respectively, on his show's official YouTube channel.
Silverstone, most famous for her role as the spoiled teenager Cher in 1995's Clueless, made headlines earlier this week when she posted a video of her feeding her 11-month-old son, Bear Blu. The video made headlines because it wasn't just any regular feeding -- Silverstone can be seen pre-chewing the food before feeding it, mouth-to-mouth, to her baby.
I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of veggies from the soup . . . from my mouth to his. It's his favorite . . . and mine. He literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I'm eating. This video was taken about a month or 2 ago when he was a bit wobbly. Now he is grabbing my mouth to get the food! she explained on her blog, The Kind Life, where the video was posted.
With more than 1.3 million views on YouTube already, the video, called bear eating my mouth has received a lot of backlash from viewers and experts alike. Silversone has also been mocked by Fashion Police team Joan Rivers and Kelly Osbourne, who in this week's episode, finds Rivers feeding a sandwich to her co-host, mouth-to-mouth.
We're a very happy group here, and we're like family too, Rivers says before the feeding.
Rest easy, Kimmel fans, the challenge will not involve any mouth-to-mouth with your kids or loved ones.
Even I have limits . . . I would like you to tell them it's been chewed, and then serve it to them on a plate like this, doesn't have to be this much, could be a little pile. This used to be pizza, by the way, Kimmel said in his challenge video, holding a plate of chewed food.
You can use any food. And tell your kids a doctor named Alicia Silverstone said it's healthy for parents to chew the food first. And explain that this is how eating is going to work in the house from now on, he added.
Already, several submissions have hit the YouTube scene. Question is, will you take Kimmel's latest challenge?
