¡Dios mio! Things got quite international when Kerry Washington stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Thursday to chat about her show "Scandal."

Kimmel and Washington presented a sneak peek look at "Escandalo," the Mexican adaptation of the ABC hit.

"Now Scandal is on all over the world, right?" Kimmel asked.

"It's very cool," Washington said. "Like we were all sitting around on set one day and we realized the South African premiere was happening. ... We were like, 'Oh, let's live tweet with our South African audience.'"

That led into discussion of the popular Spanish-language version airing in Mexico. Kimmel's sidekick, Guillermo, plays el president Fitz to Washington's Spanish-speaking Olivia Pope.

"Scandal" stars Bellamy Young and Katie Lowes--as well as several poison darts--also appear in the mock telenovela.
