Son Finally Gets Back At Prankster Dad Eight Years After Xbox Gift Trick

Eight years of plotting went into this son’s Christmas plan to get back at his prankster dad.

Eight years ago, when a YouTube user known as FPSGamer turned 16, his dad gave him what he thought was an Xbox 360.

But when he opened the package, he found not a games console but an Xbox box filled with an assortment of gifts that eventually led to a key to the real birthday present, his first car.


“I was elated and very grateful for the car,” he wrote on YouTube, “but until I saw it I was still a little disappointed that the box did not hold an Xbox. When presented with the car, I went to the trunk to see if the Xbox had been placed there.”

It hadn’t. There was no Xbox. Still, a car’s a pretty good alternative, right?

But the prank smarted. So, eight years later, he and his brothers decided to take revenge.

This Christmas, they presented their car-mad dad with an Xbox One - or so he thought.

Just like eight years ago, the Xbox box was filled not with a games console but with an assortment of clues that eventually led the prankster dad to the boot of a car where the real Xbox was hidden.

Sweet, sweet revenge.
