In one of Jimmy Kimmel's recent segments for Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the late night host cited a recent study from the Pew Research Center, referencing that one in four Americans have not read a book in the past year. To confirm the study, Kimmel's team took to the streets to ask everyday people to name any book in the world.

In the segment aptly dubbed, "Name a Book" above, the hilarious and embarrassing clip solidifies Pew's recent study, as only one book was named after several people of all ages were asked if they can name a book they've read.

Interestingly, references to Dr. Seuss were highlighted, even though it's primarily for children, while the only person to successfully name one said, "I can name Moby Dick, he wrote a book called Horse. I like that book."
