Jimmy Kimmel Once Again Had Parents Tell Kids They Ate All the Halloween Candy

1

At this point, watching kids freak out over lost Halloween candy is as much of a holiday tradition as Hocus Pocus marathons. For seven years running, Jimmy Kimmel Live! has asked parents to tell their kids they ate all their hard-earned Halloween candy, and it still never gets old.

This year, the clip was introduced by guest host Jennifer Lawrence. Some kids burst into tears, one gave a parent the finger, and another slapped the camera out of a parent’s hand. Others calmly said they didn’t love their parents anymore, and yet others maturely forgave their parents.

Even Channing Tatum, who guest hosted earlier in the week, tried it with his daughter, Everly. “That’s not funny,” she repeated to her apologetic dad. “You’re right, that really was not funny,” Tatum said afterward. “I’m so sorry baby, I hope you forgive me someday for that.”

Kimmel’s segment ended with a call to anyone with leftover candy to donate them to the troops via Operation Gratitude. If you’d like to do so, check out their website.
