LATEST: Matt Damon has taken revenge on his pal Ben Affleck's mocking TV clip, by launching his own campaign urging the public to send the DAREDEVIL star toys.

In a mock public service announcement, which was taped recently for comedian Jay Leno's chat show, Affleck jokingly knocks his longtime friend for being "needy" - and offers a man the chance to take his place and become a "big brother" for Damon.

And now Damon has used Leno's services to hit back with his own ad, in which he says, "I'm Matt Damon, asking you to think of those less fortunate this holiday season and give generously to 'Toys For Ben Affleck'.

"Why can't he buy his own toys this Christmas? Let's just say he's not as good at poker as he thinks he is.

"So drop off a new unwrapped toy at his agent's office. What kind of toy, you may ask. Well, he prefers strippers and fast cars, but DISCO ELMO will do just fine."
