Every year, Jimmy Kimmel asks viewers to submit videos of them pranking their kids with the meanest prank ever — a lie that they ate all their Halloween candy. Well this year, Kimmel did the Halloween candy prank himself to his own daughter, and also got Channing Tatum and Pink in on the action as well.
Kimmel, who is away from this show this week, has had celebrity guest hosts sit in his chair. Jennifer Lawrence introduced the video montage of viewers pranking their kids.
“Both the trick and treat every year, Jimmy invites parents to pretend they ate all of their kids’ Halloween candy. And once again those evil parents delivered in a huge and big way,” she said. “So here it is — the seventh annual ‘Hey Jimmy Kimmel I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy’ [montage].”
Some of the kids freak out, while others are adorably sweet and forgiving of their parents’ transgressions. One, still in her costume from the night before, just stands there in shock. A few others used the F-word to communicate their feelings. One even flips his mom the bird as he runs away. Another kid punches his dad in the balls. Ouch, that hurts.
Our favorite is a child named Dasher, who simply responds, “And that’s why I don’t love you anymore.”
In the days leading up to the video, Channing Tatum, Pink and Jimmy Kimmel himself also shared videos of them pranking their own kids.
Kimmel’s daughter really didn’t take the bait, while Tatum’s daughter was heartbroken. Pink’s husband is the one who broke the news to their daughter Willow, who wasn’t easily swayed.
