Oprah Does It Again, Giving Away A Car
Oprah did it again. It happened on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday night. The TV titan was promoting her new film, Lee Daniels' The Butler, when it happened.
Oprah said, "Hold on a minute. Hold on a minute."
Kimmel asked, "What's wrong?"
"I don't know, I just got that feeling again," said Oprah.
Was the feeling she was talking about from that memorable moment from her old talk show from 2004 when she announced to her entier audience, "You get a car! You get a car! Everybody gets a car!"
On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Oprah said, "You. Lady in the blue. You, right there, you. Come up here a minute. What's your name?"
"Britney," replied the audience member.
Oprah said, "I want to say this to you. You, you get a car!"
And just like that, Oprah gave away another car. A brand new Ford Fusion Energi.
Britney joyfully said, "I can't believe this is happening right now."
Getting a car from Oprah can change your life. That famous show from 2004 made TV history when she gave away 276 Pontiacs. Everyone went wild jumping for joy.
INSIDE EDITION caught up with three women who were in the audience that day, Molly Vielweber, Shearry Warren and Tricia Nester. Nester was jumping up and down on her car in the parking lot.
Nester told INSIDE EDITION, "I was hugging my car. I just couldn't believe it."
She sold her car right after the show with just 15 miles on the odometer. She got $23,000 for it.
Vielweber gave her car to her daughter, Morgan, who still drives it. The car has the original license plate 'Oprah 6.' Strangers still take notice.
"When I'm at stoplights and I look in the rearview mirror, people are taking pics of my license plate. It's cool," said Morgan's daughter.
The car has almost 100,000 miles on it.
As for Oprah's latest car giveaway, Oprah just tweeted: "That was fun! I don't know what came over me!"
