A 4-year-old girl has gone viral on social media after she was recorded receiving a present from an exchange gift.
In a video shared by netizen El Mico Locco, the girl thought that she was receiving an Apple phone after seeing that the content of the gift she received was a box similar to the said gadget.
However, when she opened the box the excitement quickly turned into disappointment after she realized that she had received a literal ‘apple’ fruit and not a phone.
The video received millions of views on social media and it also gained the attention of some concerned citizens who thought that the prank may affect the child.
“Nakakasama ng loob na excited kang buksan ung gift pero kalokohan lang pala ung laman. Nawala na yung excitement nalungkot ka pa. Just saying.” netizen Justine Bunquin said.
“So sad,,, hnd dapat ginagawa to ng mga matatanda nag kakaroon ng bad effects po ito sa behavior ng bata… Sana na explain ng maayos ng parents that it was a joke at naiintindihan ng bata na biro lang if not dadalhin ng bata ang bad effects Hanggang pagtanda…” netizen Dheng Dayao commented.
“Nakakatuwa ang reaksyon…. pero yung naitanim na sa isipip ng bata????? kaya wag umaasa ang pamilya na lalaking maayus ang bata… unless ipapaliwanag after at sawa sa pangaral ang bata… tandaan kung ano ang itinanim syang aanihin…” netizeen Rommel Muldon remarked.
Meanwhile, Locco clarified that after the incident, they quickly comforted the child and gave the real gift to her.
In a photo posted by the netizen, it shows that the girl received a toy and it seems that she was happy with the present she got.
“Happy po siya sa nakuha nya na gift,” the uploader said.
