The absolute worst time to choose an outfit has to be the night before the first day of school. What will everybody else be wearing? Shorts or pants? Will the weather be hot or cool? What if I look stupid? Emotions are running high and the potential for embarrassment is epic.

Late night television host Jimmy Kimmel's latest video pranking unsuspecting young'uns capitalizes on their mortal fear of being called out as freaks on this most important September day. On a mid-August episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, he asked parents to post a video titled, "I Got My Kid a Horrible Back to School Outfit."
The results went up on the program's website on Wednesday. If you like watching kids squirm, throw themselves onto the floor, and generally be shocked and appalled by their parents' hideous taste (and who doesn't?), this one's for you.
This isn't the first time Kimmel has pulled one of his pranks. He's also aired videos of kids' reactions after hearing their parents ate all their Halloween candy.
