ABC late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel asked viewers to prank their young children. The day after Halloween, parents lied to the kids and claimed they’d eaten all the Halloween candy. They uploaded the videos to YouTube. Kimmel played a five-minute montage titled “I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy.”
The reactions from children vary from frightening to hilarious to adorable. But it still seems like cruel and unusual torture.
