Jimmy Kimmel's Annual Post Halloween Prank Lives Up to the Hype

Jimmy Kimmel's Annual Post Halloween Prank Lives Up to the Hype

ADVERTISEMENT

Six years ago Jimmy Kimmel initiated what would become a hilarious annual tradition on his late night talkshow, Jimmy Kimmel Live. Parents video tape their children's reactions after they tell them they ate ALL of their Halloween candy. As far as the typical child is concerned, Halloween is one of the best holidays of the year and collecting their candy stash is hard work. Each year since his prank made its debut people laugh at the combination of anger, desperation, and sadness most kids express upon thinking their hard work was gone and they had not one chocolate to show for it. 

This year certainly did not fail to live up to the reputation of hilarity the prank has developed over the years.

Reactions were as expected a combination of hilarious and touching.

One child collapsed to the ground in tears and others stood in silent disbelief. 

More notable reactions included a little girl who scolded her parents and said, "next time we go trick or treating, you don't do that, ok? Or I'll have to spank your butt and put you in your room."

Some children screamed, others sobbed, and one even cussed, dropping a giant F-bomb. Shockingly, there was even a boy who got up out of his seat and actually punched his father in anger.

On a lighter note, a little girl made us all snicker when she tried to explain to her parents that they didn't understand how hard she and her sibling had worked to collect all of their precious candy. 

Grounding us all back to reality, some children were much more sweet and forgiving with their mean parents. One little girl sweetly said, "It's ok," when her mom broke the news to her. When her mom then asked if she still loved her, the toddler responded with, "Of course I do."

Of course not all was lost, one child would not be made a fool of. "It's Jimmy Kimmel," the kid chirped. "You're hiding my candy. I've seen this before. I watched the YouTube."
