Jimmy Kimmel releases second video of parents telling kids they ate their Halloween candy

Posted on


Jimmy Kimmel’s “I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy” YouTube challenge is the gift that keeps on giving. Six years into starting the annual tradition, Kimmel still gets a bevy of hilarious, heart-warming videos. This year, he received a plethora of great submissions, including many that kept coming in even after the deadline. So on Thursday night, Kimmel played an entire second video of parents telling their kids they ate Halloween candy.

“All gone? All gone?” One girl repeatedly asked her mother while cradling an empty Trick-or-Treat bucket. Every time her mother confirmed the lie, the girl’s face scrunched up in disgust. One boy got so upset, he literally ran out of the house. Others took it a little better, such as the boy who responded “Oh, it’s okay.” Then there was the one boy who saw through the lie completely. 

“I know this is the Jimmy Kimmel trick,” he said without flinching. “That used to be my favorite show.”
