Jimmy Kimmel Pulls Halloween Candy Prank On Daughter
Every year, Jimmy Kimmel gives parents the opportunity to completely destroy their children's joy by telling them they ate their Halloween candy.
In his segment, "Hey Jimmy Kimmel, I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy," little kids become heartbroken, confused and frustrated with their moms and dads for devouring their sugary goods.
This time, it was Kimmel's turn to confess.
During the sixth annual airing of the segment on Tuesday night, the talk show host said his 2-year-old daughter, Jane, was finally old enough to trick-or-treat on Halloween.
He told the "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"audience about her first experience collecting candy, and said,
We dressed her as a monkey last night and took her around the block. She was very excited about the candy even though she doesn't know the difference between a lollipop and a popsicle.
This gave Kimmel the perfect opportunity to trick Jane into thinking he ate all her Halloween candy when she woke up the next morning.
In the segment, he stated,
She woke up this morning in a snippy mood, and she is also at the age where she says 'no' to everything. So I decided it was the perfect time to tell her I ate all her Halloween candy.
Although most children fall to the ground in despair at the news that their candy is gone, Jane took it like a champ.
She must be used to her father joking around.
Kimmel was right, though -- she did say "no" to everything, and it's pretty hilarious.
After reminiscing about the the fun time they had trick-or-treating the night before, Kimmel decides to break the news to his daughter in a casual manner. He says,
Do you remember all the candy we got? Well, Daddy ate all of it.
At this moment, you'd expect Jane's world to flip completely upside-down. But instead, she just replies with a simple "no."
He passes the empty pumpkin basket to his daughter, who examines it so closely she notices dirt at the bottom.
He argues Jane is "missing the point," and then reiterates the fact he ate all her candy.
Still, she DGAF. Jane's too good for your jokes, Dad!
After contradicting everything Kimmel says, she quickly changes the subject and says, "I want pancakes."
OK, OK, she's right. Pancakes are WAY better than Halloween candy, in my opinion.
Either way, she totally outsmarted her dad. Brava, Jane!
