Jimmy Kimmel gives people $100 if they can spell Dwyane Wade correctly (Video)



People have a problem spelling the name Dwyane Wade. I guess it’s the whole weird positioning of the “y.” It seems like the “y” should be after the “a.” It seems like the name as spelled should be pronounced Dwuh-yayne, or something.

Yeah it’s weird, but it’s also something that we as a society should have long since become used to. But this is not the case. For some reason people still struggle to spell the name Dwyane Wade.

I smell Jimmy Kimmel bit. So did Jimmy Kimmel.

The late night comedian sent some intern or producer into the street and had them offer random people a $100 prize for spelling the name Dwyane Wade correctly.

It was not pretty.

Evidently, the Dwyane Wade misspelling scourge afflicts not just lazy bloggers but regular people too. Good work by Jimmy Kimmel turning this terrible problem into a somewhat amusing comedy bit that revolves around making people look slightly stupid.

Points deducted for failing to get Dwyane Wade himself to appear at the end of the bit. You know they tried. They efforted the hell out of that but no dice. Wade has no sense of humor about himself. And he can’t play defense.
