Jimmy Kimmel has been known to encourage some pretty heartless pranks — including, but not limited to, the annual tradition of parents pretending to eat their children’s Halloween candy and filming the reactions.
However, this new prank may be too savage for its own good.
Kimmel recently asked fans to contribute to the newest YouTube challenge by throwing snowballs (or, in some cases, buckets of snow) at their loved ones while they were laying in bed. Not surprisingly, this particular challenge resulted in some pretty wet mattresses, and some pretty pissed off people.
But honestly, can you blame them?
Some of the reaction shots are truly priceless.
The look of confusion and despair is so real here.
Although I have to say, I love how this little girl was utterly delighted about being the victim of a Jimmy Kimmel prank.
And let’s not forget the true hero of the montage: this dog, who was willing to pop in and valiantly lick the snow from his owner’s ear.
For those of us in the audience, the prank montage was both entertaining and humbling — because we’re all forced to reckon with how susceptible we are to the cruel and cold awakening of a snowball to the face.
Enjoy, but let this also serve as a subtle reminder to sleep with one eye open, particularly if you have a family member or significant other who is a fan of utterly diabolical pranks.
