Some parents love pranking their kids and getting a good laugh as their children cry about their loss of Halloween candy or whine about the bad Christmas gifts they’ve been jokingly given. But some think this mom who led her son to believe he had purchased a $50,000 car on eBay went too far.
In a YouTube video posted December 30, the mom wrote, “My 8 year old almost bought [a] $50K Mustang on eBay, I decided to tease him a little.”
The video starts with the son laying forlornly on an ottoman as his mother Paula Papen says “Did you buy that $50,000 Mustang on eBay?” He swears he didn’t, but she says he did and the deal is done. Then the crying begins.
