JIMMY KIMMEL's Halloween Challenge Receives Over 14 Million Views on Youtube
Following Halloween, Jimmy Kimmel challenged parents to pretend they'd eaten all of their kids' trick or treat candy, video tape each child's reaction to the bad news and then post it to YouTube. The late-night host shared the results in a video -- and the kids were pissed. The video has grown exponentially over the past week, with more than 14 million views on YouTube. The two kids at the end of the montage, CJ and Jacob, have been invited to Los Angeles to be guests on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" this Thursday, November 10.
While the Jimmy Kimmel Live YouTube channel averages about five million video views a week, this particular segment is the single most viewed "Jimmy Kimmel Live" video since Justin Bieber surprised a three-year-old fan back in March 2010.
