Kids confess the worst thing they’ve ever done in front of their dads on Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel is back at it again, ruining perfectly stable nuclear families.

It all started with his magnum opus, the ‘I Told My Kids I Ate Their Halloween Candy Challenge’ – where, as the title suggests, parents hide their kids’ Halloween hauls, tell them they ate them and then film the reaction.

This time though, in honour of Father’s Day (don’t panic – it was only in the US, Aussie Father’s Day is not till September) the Jimmy Kimmel Show hit the streets and asked kids what the worst thing they’d ever done that their dad didn’t know about.

You’d think that the sensible response to that would be to politely decline, but the allure of Internet stardom got the better of these little tikes who were all too willing to spill the beans with their dads right next to them.

The kids’ stories are all pretty great, but the real winner here is keeping a close eye on the fathers’ faces as they grapple not only with their own parental oversights but the fact that it’s going to be viewed by millions of people around the world.

Happy Father’s Day!
