Let’s face it, when you’ve thought long and hard about what to give someone as a present, you’re hoping for at least a pleased reaction from the recipient. Children are often good at letting out their unbridled glee at receiving an item for which they’ve been longing.

But a video posted to YouTube this week is not only keeping the Christmas spirit alive well into the New Year, but it’s showing that adults can exhibit childlike joy as well.

“For some background on this video and my uncle – Henry is hearing [and] speech impaired. He has a heart of gold and everyone who meets Henry absolutely loves him,” the YouTube user going by MiamiRedSkin wrote.

“Henry is also a kid at heart and loves Hot Wheels, cars and especially games on his iPhone. Because we appreciate Henry so much and wanted to show him how much he is loved, we all pitched in and got Henry the ultimate gift (as you can see, he was quite happy),” the family member continued.

Check out the footage to see Uncle Henry’s reaction and find out what he received:

“That moment was pure joy and excitement,” MiamiRedSkin wrote. “Henry is probably playing games on his new iPad right now.”

The family members in the video seem just as excited watching Uncle Henry’s reaction.

As with any viral video these days, some may ask, “Was his reaction canned?” We — and probably the more than 2 million other people who have watched the video — sure hope not.
