Prank by Plainville Parent Featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Plainville's Erica Weihrauch told her son that she ate all his Halloween candy as part of a prank for Jimmy Kimmel Live! The reaction was unlike the others in the montage.
For the second time in as many years, the Jimmy Kimmel Show challenged parents to film them telling their children that they ate all their Halloween candy.
While many children in the montage featured on the show last week cried and were angry at the idea that all their candy was gone, one local child took the news quite well.
When Erica Weihrauch of Plainville told her son Ryan that she ate all his candy, the four year old who will be five this month simply said, "It's alright. I just want you to feel happy."
"The comments that he (Ryan) is getting from people around the world are amazing. He is a very sweet boy and I'm so happy the world got to see that," Erica Weihrauch said about the video.
The video has been a YouTube hit, obtaining over 10 million hits since being uploaded on November 3. The prank can be seen at the 4:23 mark of the video above.
Ryan isn't the only local to be featured in the montage. A Norton boy was also featured in the video.
