Nobody on the street can name a single book title on 'Jimmy Kimmel' -- and it's funny but depressing

Can you name a book? Well, congratulations. Apparently that puts you within America's elite.

Citing a new study from the Pew Research Center, Jimmy Kimmel said that one in four Americans hasn't read a book in the past year. Skeptical that people had really been honest with their survey answers, Kimmel's team took to the street to ask everyday people to name a book -- any book in the world.

After one after another people -- of all ages, mind you -- failed the simple task at hand, one man was confident he'd nailed it:

"I can name 'Moby Dick,'" he says. "He wrote a book called 'Horse.' I like that book."

Another woman attempted to find a loophole: "Do magazines count?" she asks.

"No, those wouldn't be books," a producer responds off-camera.

"That's correct," she concedes.

Watch in the video above. And then X out of the internet and go read a book.
