Four years of parents torturing their kids for our amusement. Jimmy Kimmel is back with his annual tradition of #HeyJimmyKimmelIToldMyKidsIAteAllTheirHalloweenCandy.
He’s right in the intro. It never gets old, and he can do the joke as long as people keep having kids.
My favorite? The kids at 4:48. They see through the joke and happily point out the ongoing Kimmel Halloween prank. Congrats to Jimmy for snagging the Minecraft demographic.
What about the funny moments? The kid at 5:23. Perfect in his overly dramatic collapse. Little man deserves a trip to the candy store just for that.
The older brother at 2:48 is the best at teaching his baby brother exasperation at an early age. Well played.
What about the kids who react with the best manners? That would be the fella at 5:03. Either he’s being raised right, or that’s a serious poker face as he plots his revenge.
Overall, it’s the kind of prank that never gets old. Watching someone’s kid go completely ballistic, overly dramatic or become the sweetest kid before your eyes. Still not buying it kid at 5:03. The revenge will be sweet when it happens.
Kimmel pulls the prank as a push for Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit that sends 150,000 care packages filled with snacks, entertainment and letters of appreciation to veterans, caregivers, new recruits and first responders.
Each Halloween, the organization asks you to donate your leftover candy to help fill the packages. Head over the Operation Gratitude to learn more.
