Mayor Rob Ford is reportedly unhappy about his experience on late night TV.

He appeared on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live early this morning, wearing a black suit and shirt with a red tie.

"Why are you dressed like a magician?" Kimmel asked Ford after the mayor sat down on the guest's chair.

There were then some awkward moments during the long interview.

When Kimmel asked the mayor to stand next to a screen, Ford looked uncomfortable as some of the infamous videos of him were shown.

The host got more serious near the end of Ford's appearance.

"If you are an alcoholic," Kimmel started to say as Ford threw back his head and laughed. "If you're drinking enough that you can try crack in your 40s and you don't remember it, maybe that's something that you might want to think about talking to somebody about," Kimmel said.

Ford replies that he ''wasn't elected to be perfect'' but elected to ''clean up the mess that he inherited.''

Councillor Doug Ford later told Newstalk 1010 host and Toronto Sun columnist Joe Warmington that his brother, the mayor, is a "little upset" about the appearance, but that "he’ll be back out swinging."
