"I started to get this under control," Oprah Winfrey joked of her giveaway gusto during a visit to "Jimmy Kimmel Live."
It's been nine years since Oprah Winfrey repeated those welcome words to an eager (and then some) audience: "You get a car! You get a car! And you …" get the idea.
The former titan of talk gave away 276 Pontiacs during that major "Oprah Winfrey Show" moment, and on Wednesday night, she must have been feeling a little nostalgic. During a visit to "Jimmy Kimmy Live," Winfrey did it again — sort of.
"You … you … you get a car! You get a car! You get a car!" she shouted as confetti rained down on the "Live" stage.
Only this time, she shouted it to just one audience member.
"We don't have a car!" Kimmel insisted. But O knew better and handed over the keys to a new Ford.
"I started to get this under control," she joked of her addiction to auto giveaways. "Every once in a while it just happens, Jimmy — especially when I skip lunch. My blood sugar gets low. … I feel better."
And so did one lucky lady from the audience.
"Oprah would like to thank the Ford Motor Company for its generous donation as she continues her struggle with this debilitating condition," an announcer added.
After the generous deed was done, Oprah went back to the primary purpose of her "Live" visit — promoting her new film, "Lee Daniels' The Butler," which hits theaters nationwide Friday.
