Jimmy Kimmel’s Annual Halloween Prank Continues to Slay

Screaming, whining children are acceptable during one time of year, and one time of year only…

The days after Oct. 31, for Jimmy Kimmel’s annual “I Ate All Your Halloween Candy” YouTube Challenge.

Back for its third year, Kimmel asked scheming parents across America to record themselves admitting to their children that they did indeed eat all of the candy their child had earned trick-or-treating. What unfolds in each clip is apocalyptic devastation, the kind that can only bring the L-O-Ls for viewers. Kimmel aired a roundup of his fave Challenge reactions on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night.

Kimmel continues to be the king of the internet in the latenight space. Along with his YouTube Challenges, Kimmel trolled the world with the infamous flaming twerking video, and recently duked it out with Kanye West on Twitter.

    Really funny, except for the couple of kids who, though obviously very disappointed, instantly forgave their parents. Kinda made me feel like a jerk for laughing at the others.

    Haha. Reading your angry comment makes me realize how talented Kimmel (and his writing team) is. Hahaha.

    Screaming, whining children are only acceptable WHERE? On Jimmy Kimmel? This reporter obviously has no kids (and even more obviously HATES the little whiny, screamy brats).

    Yes, this segment made me laugh, but I felt kinda skeevy doing so. A kid and his sweets are not soon parted (and there actually ARE evolutionary reasons for a kid’s sweet tooth I won’t get into here). And when a parent does it for his own selfish tastebuds? And for television fame?
