Broccoli has caused its fair share of disappointment in youngsters, but this is probably a first.
Four-year-old Max was brought to tears when he found out the “surprise” he was getting was a trip to the circus — instead of the broccoli farm. Thinking Max would be overcome with joy, his dad filmed the moment Max found out.
“Hi daddy,” the adorable tyke says when the car door swings open. But his attitude quickly changes from confusion to disappointment when dad reveals the truth: they did not go to a broccoli farm at all. Dad tries to reassure him that there are elephants at the circus, but Max is not so easily won over. So the best he can do is reassure Max they’ll get some broccoli on the way home.
Crying for a chance to get broccoli? Talk about every parent’s dream. Now they’re on the hook for taking Max to a real broccoli farm, and we can only hope we get to see the reaction to that as well. Max’s “aww”-worthy preference to broccoli over the circus has already racked up nearly half a million views on YouTube since being posted in late February. Check it out below.
