Back in October and November, Jimmy Kimmel’s “I Ate Your Halloween Candy” video went viral, and the late night comedian has done it again, this time for Christmas. Last night he aired a video montage of clips sent in by parents called “Terrible Christmas Presents.” Parents across America rose to Kimmel’s challenge and the end result is a hilarious video that’s sure to go viral this month.
Jimmy Kimmel started this new tradition of tricking kids when he challenged parents to tell their kids that they ate all of their Halloween candy while the children were sleeping. The video became an Internet sensation and scored over 24 million views.
Looking for another success, Jimmy Kimmel issued another challenge last week. He told parents…
If you have kids, find a terrible present, wrap it up, and tell them you’re giving it to them early this year. Then, post it on YouTube and call it ‘Jimmy Kimmel, I gave my kids a terrible Christmas present.’
The comedian then told viewers that he would pick the best videos and create a new one called “Terrible Christmas Presents” for the holiday season. Parents answered the challenge and last night Kimmel aired the funny montage. So, what did parents wrap up for their unsuspecting children?
- Old banana
- Hot dog
- Half-eaten sandwich
- Black beans
- Waffle House hat
- Hello Kitty shirt for a boy
- Ponies for a boy
- Invisible fence for dog
The kids’ reactions ranged from politely confused to downright disturbed. Below are some of the best comments from the kids who received the “Terrible Christmas Presents” from their parents.
- “I don’t like this.”
- “You didn’t do a very good job.”
- “This is the worst Christmas ever.”
- “I appreciate getting the present, but I didn’t know it would be like that.”
- “You stinking parents. I want a refund.”
When one mom said to blame the terrible present on Jimmy Kimmel, her kid had a few choice words for the late night comedian. Jimmy’s response to the crude comment was…
If Santa gives that kid anything, he’s fired. He’s done. He’ll have no credibility.
