Jimmy Kimmel has managed to take aim at United Airlines and reignite his 'feud' with Matt Damon in one short sketch.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Matt delivered a voiceover on a new United Airlines advert that referenced the shocking incident that saw a passenger forcibly removed from one of their planes.

"We're United Airlines, we work hard to get you safely to your destination and that's why we…" he starts, before quickly going off script.

"I can't do this anymore because I know what it's like to get bumped. Trust me, I've been getting bumped from Jimmy's show for the last eight years and it takes a toll. We're people, damn it, and we deserve to be treated with dignity."

A United Airlines flight attendant is then heard telling Matt that they need his seat – "I'm doing the voiceover for your company, what do you mean, sir? I'm Matt Damon" – before sounds of a struggle and Jimmy takes over.

"Hi, I'm Jimmy Kimmel. Inviting you to come fly the friendly skies," he says while Matt is yelling "you people are animals" in the background.

The advert marks the latest bout in one of TV's funniest feuds, which continued during Jimmy's hosting debut at this year's Oscars when he took a potshot at Matt during his opening monologue.

Jimmy then mocked We Bought a Zoo and had the orchestra play any time Matt tried to speak when he was presenting the Best Original Screenplay award.
