Dax Shepard was talking about his podcast on Jimmy Kimmel Live and somehow the conversation shifted to his “Jell-o story.”

Apparently when Shepard was a young boy watching “Real Genius” he got the inspiration to get it on with a bowl of Jell-O.

As an eight-year-old living at home, he could not find any Jell-O so he had to wait to experiment until he was 20 and living on his own in LA.

He went up to the store, whipped up a batch of Jell-O and ended up pretty disappointed in his experience after waiting 12 long years!
