Why would you do that to a kid, and then put it on the INTERNET?!

There goes BM N8ing Engadget again
That made me really fvcking upset.
Engadget just likes to stir the sh*t, they didn't post the youtube link.
Besides that an overpriced video game system versus necessities like clothing are a better gift.
Maybe the kid will even get exercise or develop social skills if he played less video games.
I wanted a Neo Geo when I was younger but if I got one it wouldn't have made a difference.
Wow, my parents did the opposite.
Hiding nice present in clothes boxes.
He will probably have trust issues with them for years.
As the video description says, he still got the 360, he was being put on for not listening to his mother and peeking at his xmas presents.
You miss the point.
The point is that he is a child, his hopes were high, his expectation seemed to be met. Then suddenly, not only is that hope taken away and expectation shot down to its nadir, but those who took it away point and LAUGH. And this goes on much too long.
Jokes are only funny when the "victim" is comfortable enough to laugh also.
So they can post the humiliation video on Youtube with no problem, but they can't post the redemption video?
Forgive me if I'm a bit skeptical...
My parents used to do things like put a pair of socks into some huge box. Everyone got a laugh out of it. I once wrapped my brothers present with a bunch of steel wire and duct tape, it took him hours to get it open. But everyone expected pranks and they were never done with any malice.
The older brother is 19, he probably doesn't hang out on the Internet all day:
Great idea! I'm going to steal it!
I would have laughed...
I dunno, seems like the sooner these pampered 21st century kids learn that life is just one crushing disappointment after another, the sooner they'll come to terms with the reality of their minimum wage future.
