Jimmy Kimmel's back-to-school YouTube challenge
Jimmy Kimmel is continuing his crusade to ruin childhood milestones — and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Last Halloween, Kimmel convinced parents to pretend they’d eaten all of their offspring’s candy and videotape the fallout. Next, he had parents gift the worst Christmas presents ever. Now he’s set his sights on back-to-school season, asking moms and dads to give their children new outfits that are ugly, uncomfortable, out of style, or just plain weird.
The results: “What boy has flowers on their shirt? Even the teacher will probably laugh at me,” moans one kid, rolling on the floor in distress. A girl named Isabella pouts in her frilly tutu before deadpanning, “I look like an idiot.” As for the boy asked to wear a burlap sack so he can look more like Jesus? Let’s just say he doesn’t take it very well. See for yourself:
Whose reaction is your favorite? I’m partial to little Zoe, though I hope her mom immediately took that bag off her head.
