LOS ANGELES, Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Hollywood actor Ben Affleck said Harrison Ford was "awesome" for appearing in the outrageous new video Affleck made with comedian Jimmy Kimmel.

In it, Affleck and Kimmel jokingly sing about having a sexual relationship together.

The star-studded Internet sensation was retaliation for a similar video Kimmel's girlfriend comedian Sarah Silverman made with Affleck's best friend Matt Damon.

"The first name that came to me -- because I'm such a huge fan -- was Harrison Ford," Affleck told Entertainment Weekly. "(The executive producer of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live') called me back 10 minutes later, 'We got Harrison Ford!' And I was like: 'What? Harrison Ford said yes?' He was awesome. I think people were naturally a little bit intimidated by him, and didn't want to push him at all," Affleck said.

"He saw his wardrobe looked kind of normal and was like, 'Don't we have anything here that's mesh?' That beat gets the biggest laugh in the whole video, where he's got his chain and he's in the convertible and he blows a kiss. It's the most incongruous moment in the thing because he's the most rugged, masculine guy in the world, and there he is in his West Hollywood outfit blowing kisses."
