Last week we posted about an online study that focused on parents who admitted to spoiling their kids over the holidays. This week we chose a much different topic: Jimmy Kimmel’s challenge to the parents of America to punk their kids by wrapping up something they knew their kids would hate (everything from a rotten banana to a half-eaten sandwich) and then videotaping their reactions when they opened their “gifts.”
For sure, the looks on these kids’ faces is priceless and it’s hard not to laugh. But is this funny, mean – or both? Would you punk your kid with a gag holiday gift and post a videotape of their reaction online?
