Yeshiva students to the rescue on Jimmy Kimmel

WATCH: In late-night skit, actor in SpongeBob costume collapses on Hollywood Boulevard, largely ignored by passersby

SpongeBob SquarePants collapses on Hollywood Boulevard and writhes around on the star-studded pavement.

It may sound like the beginning of a joke, but Jimmy Kimmel decided to gauge bystander’s reactions to the paralyzed cartoon character on US national television Tuesday.

As part of the candid camera-style experiment aired on the late-night talk show, an actor dressed as SpongeBob falls down mid-street and waits for a passerby to pick him up off the pavement.

Multiple onlookers pass over the character as he pleads for help and a number of them even snap out their smartphones to document the comical scene.

Nearly seven minutes go by until a bunch of yeshiva students help the performer off the ground.

SpongeBob and the clearly bemused seminary students then link arms, dancing on the sidewalk to the tune of “Hava Nagila.”

“It turned into a bar mitzvah out there,” Kimmel quips after viewing the footage.
