I fully understand that this video has nothing to do with me or Mother’s Day (yesterday), but the timing of this video has never made me feel any worse of a son. My Mother’s day gift to mom is still in the mail, I didn’t see my parents yesterday, and all I did was talk to them on the phone for a while. Meanwhile you’ve got this bro who just blew the steam engine horn and kicked that feels train into motion. CHOO CHOOOOOOOOO. Seriously, bros, when did it get so damn dusty up in here?
I’m definitely a better son than many out there, but I’ll be damned if watching this didn’t make me want to ramp up my appreciation for my parents in 2015. Maybe that’s what this is: tricky viral marketing from the Parent Association of America. Maybe marketers poured millions of dollars into this video with the design to illicit love, spending, and tears from children all across America?
In all seriousness, I truly hope I can make it to a place financially where one day I can send my parents on a trip like this. I think most of us would love to do something like this, but we can barely afford to pay for our meals, let alone buy our parents all-inclusive trips to Hawaii. But it’s awesome that this bro has the means to do get his parents there, and the appreciation seen on the face of his parents is the very definition of ‘the feels’ (on the Internet).
