Video of the Week


Arguably, one of the best parts of Halloween doesn’t take place on October 31. For the past three years, Jimmy Kimmel has recruited parents across the country to cruelly convince their children that they ate all of their hard-earned Halloween candy. (Spoiler alert: it’s all a big joke.) Check out this year’s installment of “I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy” and get ready for some of the biggest freak outs we’ve seen yet!
