Why is this funny?

I happened to see a piece of this video on the news this morning.  Of course they were all laughing about it.  Evidently the idea was the have parents tell their children that they ate all of their Halloween candy.  The parents were then to post a video with their reaction.  Then everyone laughs at the kids for crying.

Why do people do stuff like this?  Is there any reason to lie to your children in order to get some cheap laugh out of it?  There were comments on the video saying how spoiled the kids were for crying about their candy.  How about how attention driven the parents are for using their kids as pawns to get attention?  It just does not strike me as the kind of respect I want my children demonstrating to other people.

What do you think?  Am I being too harsh?
