This is Steve, and he’s has been talking about the new Nintendo Entertainment System for two months. When his parents decide to surprise him, little Steve bursts into tears!

This video, shot in 1988, shows Steve getting surprised by his parents with a new NES for Christmas. Backstory: he’s been talking about and saving up to purchase the system himself for about two months. Once he realizes that his parents bought it for him, he is totally overwhelmed and starts crying with joy. Steve unwraps the console gleefully exclaiming “this is great!!” (while the Ghostbusters theme plays on the television in the background).

Watch this!


We love when Steve’s Dad excitedly asks, “How you doin’ on that game?” and Steve honestly answers “…bad.”
