The talk show host and prankster releases this year's edition of "Hey Jimmy Kimmel, I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy"

Kids, your parents ate all your Halloween candy again — or maybe not.

Jimmy Kimmel sure knows how to incite some seriously first world pains in America's children with his annual prank. You know the drill well by now: The day after trick-or-treating, parents all over are invited to fib to their kids that they ate their Halloween candy — yes, all of it — and film their reaction for a shot at five seconds of fame. Now in its fifth year, the video's a hit with parents, who sent in more than 1,000 uploads onto Youtube for the Kimmel crew to pick and choose.

This year saw tantrums, meltdowns and even physical violence from the kids, who raised hell when their treats are seemingly taken away from them. Others immediately bought it, calling Kimmel out on it. Luckily for him, the videos continue to entertain — it's a joke that never gets old.
