Birthdays should be a time for celebration, but for one Japanese family the happy occasion ended in tears, trauma and potentially years of therapy down the line.
Twitter user nyannyannyai shared a clip of their family celebrating the birthday of their young son, who they surprised with an adorable ice cream cake shaped like Pokémon’s Eevee.
Video you'll love from around the web
What should have been a wholesome and memorable moment for the whole family quickly soured as the cake was being cut, with the young boy apparently panicking and bursting into tears as the side of Eevee’s getting hacked to bits [via UNILAD]. Maybe the cake was just a little too realistic for him.
Check out the video in the tweet below and whether you laugh or cry, please know that I’m not judging you.
nyannyannyai later tweeted saying: “[I’m] very happy to read the comments that there are many people who are worried about my son, who are cute, and who are kind.”
The video has since gone viral, amassing over a million views at the time of writing.
In other less disturbing Nintendo-related news, TMZ reports that a collection of Pokémon trading cards have just been sold at auction for the eye-watering sum of $107,010 USD at Goldin Auctions, and it’s not too surprising for the hardcore collectors out there.
The report states that a total of 103 Pokémon cards were sold at the auction, with each and every card bearing a “Gem Mint 10” rating – meaning they’re as pristine as they come.
If you were wondering what the collection included, the cards (naturally) came with the elusive and oh-so-expensive first edition Shiny Charizard card, as well as Chansey, Blastoise and Alakazam.
It might be time to dig out your old card collection…
