While the meaning of Christmas certainly doesn’t have to do with presents, as kids, many of us have had that feeling when we got a gift we didn’t particularly like. But few have turned into an actual tornado of RAGE as a result. A short video of one boy’s reaction to being given the wrong video game is going totally viral on Twitter because it’s honestly totally mind-blowing. It’s like a car crash — you just can’t stop looking at it.
On Christmas Eve, Twitter user @_mayraduarte_ uploaded a video of a child throwing a totally insane tantrum because he was given WWE 2K15 instead of WWE 2K16. As he begins to scream, a voice off-camera says, “They were out of stock”. . . which led the boy to screaming even louder and banging stuff on the ground. How very Christmas-y of him!
Seems like he really should take a page out of the book of the kid who got an avocado as a gift.
The video has since been retweeted almost 24,000 times, with some responding with dumbfounded shock (understandable, TBH) and others finding it hilarious.
It turns out that sometimes, tantrums *do* get you what you want. When the video went viral, the WWE 2K Twitter account quoted the tweet saying, “We might be able to help out here.”
A Christmas miracle! However, the original poster later explained that the video was a joke, and we were a little bit relieved, TBH.
Phew. An impressive child actor we have here, because he definitely had us going. Casting directors, take note. Merry Christmas, one and all!
