Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel says that he “didn’t expect so much crying” after he challenged parents on Monday night to film their kids’ reactions as they told their little goblins that they had eaten all of their Halloween candy overnight.

Reactions in these videos range from stunned disbelief, to crying, to outright violent tantrums. Of course, this could probably be expected, given that most kids probably stay up far later than usual, working hard to bring home a fat pumpkin bucket of loot, and they are probably well into the depths of a sugar crash the next morning when they are confronted with the (fake) bad news.
