After days of teasing the townsfolk of Dildo, late night host Jimmy Kimmel further fuelled the anticipation on Wednesday night by telling the citizens, “I’ll see you tomorrow for the big vote.”

But did he mean in person or via another video chat?

The “Kimmel for Mayor” running gag started on his show Aug. 8 when he said he learned of the town’s unique name and announced he wanted to be mayor of it.

“I was alerted to the existence of a place, maybe a magical place.… It’s a real place in Newfoundland, Canada,” Kimmel said at the time.

That same week, he dialed in a crew of people who live in Dildo, the small Newfoundland town about an hour’s drive outside St. John’s, to talk about the town’s origins, as well as to announce he wanted to be its new mayor.

Ever since then, Kimmel’s apparent appreciation of the town, and his mayoral aspirations, has continued and people have been wondering if or when the Hollywood star would land in Dildo.
