It’s a tale as old as time- game-loving kid gets in trouble for playing Xbox instead of doing his homework. However, instead of just confiscating the console or turning off the wifi, this dad decides to take things a step further. Check it out:
Personally, I think it might’ve been a little bit of an overreaction by the dad. Yes, the kid was playing Xbox instead of working, and yes, he was a repeat offender, but I think the dad could have made a smarter choice by holding the boy’s precious Xbox for ransom. Most gamers (myself included) would do pretty much anything to get back their console- why wouldn’t the dad just take it and promise to give it back if the kid raised his grades? People are crazy.
Also, can we take a second to talk about the cameraman? What kind of heartless person would throw their own brother under the bus like that? I would never in a million years do that to my little brother, no matter what he did to me. Also, who the hell films vertically to put something on YouTube? Get it together, man.
And that poor Xbox… a victim of the circumstances. May it rest in peace.
