Now that we’re too old to trick-or-treat, it’s rare for us to even think about Halloween candy unless we’re taking the little ones in our life around the neighborhood to get theirs. Thanks to Jimmy Kimmel, it’s always on our minds the next weekday because we’re looking forward to his annual Halloween candy prank.
For the past four years, Jimmy Kimmel Live! has asked viewers to tell their kids one or both of the parents ate the Halloween candy and to record the reactions. This year, they received a record number of submissions.
There are always a few sweet kids who immediately forgive their parents (to err is human, after all), but most of the kids break down in tears. Most of them break down in tears, the universe crumbling around them as their parents seem nonchalant about scarfing down their Halloween bounty.
A couple of the kids even got downright violent. But after hoofing around for a couple of hours begging for candy, they’re bound to be serious about their hard-earned treats.
Watch this year’s video and get ready to laugh (and to feel a little guilty for this kids).
