The word ?ecstatic? is not enough to describe this child?s reaction when he received his new Minecraft game.
In this video, the child can be seen excitedly opening a gift. He goes into total hysteria when he sees that the gift contains the Minecraft game. The kid is seen hugging his new present, while wailing and crying ?I?m so happy!?
For others, the video may look like the kid is crying over a gift he did not like. He is crying hardly and looks kind of depressed. But of course we all know that was the contrary, basing from his priceless reaction. We all know those are happy, euphoric tears.
And of course, how would the kid play his Minecraft game without a player? Here then comes the second gift, an Xbox 360, so that the kid can play his new game. The kid also sensed he would be getting an Xbox 360 aside from the Minecraft gift he had earlier opened.
Still sobbing and screaming thanks, he asks if he can play his new Minecraft game on his new Xbox 360 player.
The gift apparently came from one of the kid?s parents, who uploaded the video on Youtube under the username Kenn N.?Bought my kid Minecraft. He was a little excited,? the Youtube user wrote in the video?s title.
