Around Halloween-time, Jimmy Kimmel told viewers to post YouTube videos in which they tell their kids they ate all of the Halloween candy. It was really cute and very funny (though some people think it’s very mean and cruel). Last week, he told viewers to post YouTube videos in which they show their kids opening bad Christmas presents. It’s not as funny (and some of it annoys me–with the kids’ yelling and screaming), but still amusing and entertaining. The one, kid, though–he needs serious early intervention anger management help, or I could see him as a serial killer or going Postal later on in life. Just sayin’. Ditto for the kid who utters semi-obscenities to his parents. My parents would’ve washed my mouth out with Fels Naptha soap for that.
Watch the video . . .
So, what do you think? Mean and cruel or funny and cute? (It would really be mean, if the parents didn’t tell their kids they actually got them something good and it was just a trick.) If I had kids, I wouldn’t do this. But my dad played tricks on us from time to time, and it was always funny.
