On Monday night, Jimmy Kimmel got political on his late night show "Jimmy Kimmel Live." First he called out the audience for not being enthusiastic about voting in the midterm elections -- reminding them about the important propositions and statewide races that are part of this election cycle.

He also mocked how much money was spent -- an estimated $4 billion -- on the midterm elections. Much of that goes to making crappy advertisements, like the satirical one Kimmel played for his audience. Watch below:
