Jimmy Kimmel asks kids to yell at their dads for new Father's Day challenge

‘I love you, dad!’

Posted on

Jimmy Kimmel will admit his previous YouTube challenges for Father’s Day have been a bit harsh: He’s asked kids to throw breakfast on their dads in bed and the shower, spray them with hoses, and throw pies in their faces. This year’s challenge is less jolting but will likely still jolt the dads of the day.

“Tonight I’m proud to announce the latest — and hopefully greatest — YouTube challenge: We’re not gonna dump food on dad, we’re not gonna throw anything in his face. What I want you to do is quietly sneak up on your father and yell ‘I love you, dad!’ as loud as you can,” Kimmel said on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday. “You can do this while he’s sleeping, eating, just don’t do it while he’s driving or shaving. Don’t kill or injure your father.”

There have already been a few takers since the announcement was made. Kimmel’s crew will go through all the videos leading up to Father’s Day this Sunday and pick the best ones to feature on the show.

For any kids out there personally affected by Kimmel’s Halloween candy challenge, now’s your chance to take revenge on your parents.
