Parents' PS5 Christmas gift prank on their son sparks outrage for being too mean

TWO parents have sparked outrage online after tricking their children into thinking they had been given a PS5 for Christmas.

Dozens of users criticised the pair after footage posted to Instagram showed them howling with laughter over the prank.

In the clip, two boys are seen in the centre of a living room opening a large square present.

After tearing away some of the wrapping paper, they see that inside is a PS5 box, and immediately fall to the floor screaming and hugging one another.

"Oh my God!" one says.

"I knew it, I smelt it. It smelt like glory," says the other.

The pair then open the box and, looking confused, begin pulling shoes, cardboard, and other household items.

Their parents can then be heard laughing, with their dad saying: "I'm in tears. I'm in tears."

At one point, a younger sister is also seen laughing.

"Wow," says one of the boys.

The clip was posted to Instagram and captioned: "PS5 Prank…I can smell it.

"We let our teenage, video game obsessed sons open an early Christmas gift and they thought they hit the lotto.

"Even their little sister was in on the prank. We are in tears.

"Parenting in 2020. πŸŽ…πŸΎπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚"

Many users thought the prank was too cruel.

"This is so disgusting," wrote one.

"Not funny! πŸ˜πŸ‘ŽπŸΌπŸ‘ŽπŸΌπŸ‘ŽπŸΌ How will they trust you in the future," said another.

"These parents have issues, messed up kinda joy," wrote a third.

Another joked: "They are definitely putting their parents in a dingy retirement home as soon as they are of age."

Other users defended the couple.

"This is good. I’m sure they got them one anyways," wrote one.

"It's funny and messed up at the same time. I’m pretty sure their parents got it for them being that they have the box," said another.

"Her laughter cracks me up," wrote a third.
