Kids Lose It After Jimmy Kimmel's Halloween Candy Prank (Video)
The day after Halloween can be polarizing -- some people mourn the end of their favorite holiday, while others celebrate discount candy and the onset of Thanksgiving, Christmas and all the other holidays associated with a Winter Wonderland.
But every year after Halloween, there is one sentence that makes kids completely lose their minds -- that one beautiful phrase that brings us all together at this time of year (video below).
It goes something like this. "Hey Jimmy Kimmel, I told my kids I ate all their Halloween candy."
You know the one.
The savage prank has been going on for six years in a row, and every year it cracks us up like no other. You get the temper tantrums, the "I hate you's" and even a couple of kids lunging at their parents and taking a few good swings. Some collapse to the ground, too shocked to speak, while a few others point out that they "worked so hard to get" the candy that they were looking forward to enjoying. And, of course, you get the occasional swear word.
"I'm not mad," one adorably polite girl says. "I'm not happy, but I still love you."
One kid calls his parent an "idiot" and another says they want to send Jimmy Kimmel to jail. Fair enough.
"It's Jimmy Kimmel…it's Jimmy Kimmel," says one wise little boy who has apparently seen it all, when his mom says she ate all his candy. "You're hiding my candy. I've seen this before. I've watched YouTube."
And to make things extra special this year, the ever-sadistic Kimmel decided to give his audience a new taste of excitement by showing that he can be cruel too and tried to play the prank on his 2-year-old daughter, Jane.
"She woke up this morning in a snippy mood, and she is also at the age where she says 'no' to everything," he tells the audience in the video. "So I decided it was the perfect time to tell her I ate all her Halloween candy."
Jane wasn't too phased and just wanted pancakes.
