article imageWatch Kimmel's 'I told my kid I ate all their Halloween candy'

Watch kids give vent to their most sincere feelings of shock, rage and utter devastation as parents confront them with news of the ultimate disaster that can befall a kid in the Halloween season–that the grown ups have eaten all the Halloween candy.
Once again this year, Jimmy Kimmel asked parents to tell their kids they've eaten all their Halloween candy and film their reaction. This is the second year that Kimmel, playing the YouTube arch-villain, instigates parents against innocent kids who only want to enjoy themselves on Halloween.
Watch a little boy in his underwear go berserk, screaming in rage at his mother's villainous perfidy and launching a furious attack. A forlorn boy bares his soul in utter grief at his loss; a girl cries dejectedly at the ultimate letdown in life. Another expresses her horror at the unbelievable news in stoically wide-eyed silence.
But a few of the kids just manage to remain sweet and gracious about it. A boy wins our heart when he tells his mother, "I just want you to be happy." Another girl tells her mother sweetly she hopes to share her candy next year.
Some readers have raised moral-ethical questions about this prank, saying that deceiving young children in this manner is abusive. A Daily Mail reader David Malevern, says: "Sadism masquerading as 'entertainment'. At least you had the sense not to claim that it was 'hilarious.'"
Others express strong disapproval of the tantrums the children throw. Milady from Germany, says: "I hate over-privileged, spoiled kids. Throwing tantrums for candy while other kids on the other side of the world go hungry. In a few years time they'll be party-loving teens spilling out drunk from night clubs as I've seen all weekdays and weekends. Disgusting society."
But in response to those who agree with Milady that the kids are "First-World" brats, Me, from West Midlands, UK, observes, astutely, "I'm sure a lot of people would've reacted like that if that had happened to them as a child."
However, The Huffington Post wonders why these kids won't form a league against Kimmel and their conniving parents by passing the viral video to the next generation of 4-year-olds and thwart, once and for all, this sadistic annual conspiracy against their Halloween season's joy. But it is no wonder they fall prey to a year-old gag; they don't even know who the enemy is.
"Who is Kimmel?" one of them asks innocently.
