Two time's the charm for Jimmy Kimmel's junk!

The Jimmy Kimmy Live! host revealed during a SXSW panel discussion Monday (March 16) that he went under the knife — twice! — to fix some serious problems with his penis.

"The guy said, 'Your urethra's closing up and you need it operated on,' and they did," Kimmel later told E! News, who inquired for further info. "And then they said, 'Yeah, we didn't get it, it didn't quite work. We need to do it again.' And they did it again."

The late-night personality, who is in Austin this week filming his show during SXSW, still doesn't know what set his unlucky condition into motion. He explained, "It just kind of closed up on it's own. I don't know why it happened. I still don't know why."

So, um, how much did it hurt? "It's a horrible process by the way — a horrible horrible process," Kimmel said. Poor guy!

Luckily, the traumatic experience hasn't affected his sense of humor. Already this week, Kimmel debuted three hilarious and perfectly retro commercial spots for Austin, TX's independent video rental store Vulcan Video. Not only that, he brought along his bud Matthew McConaughey to add some serious star power to the ads.
