Talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has once again inspired parents across America to lie to their kids and make them cry.

For the sixth year in a row, Kimmel aired the results of his 'I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy' video challenge.

It's pretty self-explanatory: Parents send in videos of themselves announcing to their kids they devoured all of the chocolates and lollies they collected through trick or treating.

There were tears, tantrums and even a couple of punches thrown by some devastated children, but heartwarmingly there were some kids who were quick to forgive and forget.
