In 2011, Oprah Winfrey kicked off the 19th and final season of her talk show by giving away a car to every person in her audience. More than two years later she's back at it, and this time it wasn't even on her show.

When the media mogul visited "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to talk about her new film, "The Butler," Oprah picked a random girl in a blue shirt (named Britney) and reenacted her infamous giveaway, screaming "You get a car" at the unsuspecting (and probably scared) girl, rendering her speechless.

It looked like Kimmel had no idea what was going on when Winfrey made the proclamation, saying there was no car, but that wasn't true. Britney took home a brand new Ford Fusion Hybrid that was parked outside of the studio.
