For the third year in a row, Jimmy Kimmel asked parents to help his annual Halloween prank by telling their children that they ate all their hard-earned Halloween candies. On a Monday, November 4 episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", the comedian shared a compilation of videos sent by parents when they jokingly lied to their kids.
"We got an avalanche of great responses," Kimmel said of his prank before playing the video. "It took us the whole weekend to go through them, but we did. And we pieced together our favorites."
The kids' reactions were varied, but of course there were a lot of tears. "I spent two hours walking around the entire neighborhood getting candy," one little girl said to her mother while crying.
"I hate you," a boy told his mother as he burst into tears. When his mother revealed it was only a joke, he said, "Well, that's not very kind." Another girl said, "It's okay," while sobbing. A little boy adorably said, "Oh, good job," while his older brother was weeping.
