Jimmy Kimmel debuted the annual "Favorite Things" edition of Oprah Winfrey's O Magazine on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." He took a minute or so to discuss it, because it was an exciting issue for him personally. As he put it, "Thank you Oprah for almost putting me on the cover with you!"

The cover was a shot of Winfrey in a gorgeous White by Vera Wang gown (sold exclusively at David's Bridal). But it was a gatefold cover. If you fold it out, you'll see that there's a little Jimmy Kimmel elf at a sewing machine working on the very dress that Winfrey is wearing.

Kimmel was quick to assure his audience that this wasn't a joke. This was the real magazine, and he really was just a gatefold away from appearing on the cover of the magazine.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs every weeknight at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.
