Fortnite fury: Parents pull pesky prank!

It can be a cruel world when you’re a kid …

The Fortnite obsession; it even hit some of us grown-ups this year (not pointing fingers at anyone!) and admittedly, there have been several occasions in which we’ve found ourselves square-eyed in front of the screen, surrounded by chip bags and empty cans at 4am as a result of this annoyingly addictive game.

 

Some parents however, seem to be the real ones suffering, as all around the world folks have been complaining that their kids gameplay sessions have gotten just a little out of hand. But tackling this issue is most definitely easier said than done, as mixing Fortnite and discipline is basically a recipe for disaster.

 

Jimmy Kimmel however, decided to put that recipe to the test, and all for our entertainment (thanks, Jimmy!) Challenging parents to abruptly turn the TV off whilst their kids were playing the game, the outcome was indeed messy (but it seemed the parents’ revenge was sweet!)

 

After the families suggest to the kids that turning the game off may be a good idea, we’re inundated with groans (as you might expect) and it’s evident that terrible tantrums are beginning to brew. One kid exclaims that the TV just switched off by itself and sets off into panic, whilst another gazes at his Dad in shock before demanding he just “GO COOK!”

 

One kid then attempts to tackle his parents due to the switch and another, cursing his little head off, has to be constantly bleeped out (but seriously, we kinda feel like we understand this sort of reaction.)

 

This chaos is all in the name of Kimmel’s super popular YouTube channel segment, which has previously seen parents pretending to eat their kids Halloween candy - another worry-provoking situation for all children involved – yet somewhat satisfyingly spiteful for Moms and Dads!

 

Let us know if you’d be on ‘team parent’ or ‘team kid’ in this situation! Would it turn you red if Fortnite was unplugged on you, or would you be willing to unplug it on someone else? We want to know!

My kids know that when it’s time for games to end, I will not hesitate to turn off the TV. If they act like that brat with cursing, they lose access for the next month while they are grounded.

"Mixing Fortnite and discipline is basically a recipe for a disaster?" Really? Wow. That's a parenting fail. The kid told his dad "Go cook." Not in my house. smh

Jimmy Kimmel is a dick bag that needs to be beaten with a rubber hose until he doesn't know who he is. while this prank was entertaining, he is a complete douche nozzle.

I'd definitely be on the parents' side, and if my kids started acting like some of the brats in this video, they wouldn't be able to sit down for a week. This is a prime example of what's wrong with kids these days, and also our future. There is absolutely no discipline, and what little there is isn't enough. Parents are too afraid to discipline their own kids for fear of getting slapped with a child abuse lawsuit. It's absolute bullshit. A good spank on the butt is just what these kids need - and a spank is not the same thing as a beating, FYI.
