Jimmy Kimmel getting his viewers to scare the crap out of their dads is pure magic

Jimmy Kimmel – master of the stitch up.

The mild-mannered late night American talk show host has made a name for himself for his cheeky pranks, and he wasn’t about to stop on Father’s Day.

Earlier in the week he made things super uncomfortable by asking kids to confess to their fathers the worst thing they’d ever done.

Not content with ruining their special day, Kimmel tasked his viewers with a brand new YouTube challenge.

In the past, these have included: telling parents to eat their kids’ Halloween candy hauls, unplugging the TV during the Super Bowl and giving your loved one’s terrible Christmas presents.

This new one though might be some of his best work as he got his blindly loyal fans to scare the living crap out of their fathers…with love – ie. sneaking up behind them and screaming “I LOVE YOU DAD” at the most inopportune moments.
