Jimmy Kimmel is back again this year with his Halloween prank, where he encourages parents to trick their children. After Halloween night, parents tell their children that they ate all of their Halloween candy because it was that good. The hilarious part is watching the children react in different ways.

As Kimmel points out every year, children react with anger, violence, sadness and temper tantrums. But there are the few children, who react by telling their parents that they made a mistake eating all of the candy at once. Some children even say something that no one expected.

Jimmy is already getting a few submissions for this year and he has shared them on YouTube already. Check out the first ones below.

Of course, more will come in later this week as parents are submitting their videos to Jimmy Kimmel Live. This is the eighth year that the Jimmy Kimmel Live team has done this segment and Kimmel calls it a cherished Halloween tradition.

If you want to submit your video to Jimmy Kimmel Live, upload the video to YouTube with the title, ‘Hey Jimmy Kimmel, I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy.’ The show will message you via the YouTube account if they want to use your clip for the show.

In previous years, some of the older children are starting to realize that it is a prank. Some immediately call out their parents for lying, while some have pointed to the Jimmy Kimmel Live show, asking their parents if they were only doing this to submit the video to the show.

Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weekdays at 11:35/10:35c on ABC.
