Kimmel couldn’t help but laugh and ask ‘what kind of punishment is that’ when Hudson talked about his dad’s philosophy. 

‘His philosophy is, I know what I did was wrong, right? So why ground me? So at point-blank range you’re going to destroy your car and you’re going to have to drive it for the rest of however long you own this car,’ Hudson said.
