Last night Jimmy Kimmel Live! unveiled their annual "I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy" prank video. Kimmel called the video the "most beloved and anticipated" one that they create each year, but admitted that he thinks each year that kids are going to get too smart or they'll be too old to fall for it. However, he realized, "I will able to do this for as long as people have sex."

Apparently a record number of parents uploaded videos titled "Hey Jimmy Kimmel I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy" (alternate title: "Hey Jimmy Kimmel I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy AND Filmed Their Reaction Vertically") to YouTube and Kimmel's team combed through them, resulting in this greatest hits:
