Psycho Dad Shreds Son’s Video Games in Hilarious Video

Here’s an awesome little Youtube video that’s bound to make you laugh. A Father, fed up with his son’s unwillingness to quit playing video games all day and to get a job, decides to teach him a lesson. That lesson involves the son’s gaming collection and a lawn mower.

I’m pretty sure this staged but that doesn’t stop it from being funny as hell in my mind. The son’s pleads and tantrums are so over the top, and his reaction to the utter destruction of his games is well…just watch. (Culture, Halo, Xbox 360)

While it is fake.The moral of the story is true.If you're kid ain;t doing squat with their life.Time to become a parent.

So yeah it's fake and dumber than hell. This isn't parenting. It's lunacy. Parenting is communication and guidance. Not threatening and destruction. Especially when you take into account in these situations most of the games the child owns were probably purchased by the parents themselves.

I saw this posted on facebook a couple days ago and was blown away by people I personally know thinking this was real. I've seen better acting in porn videos.

My son has played video games since he could walk. He used controllers as teething rings. He just left my house 10 minutes ago to finish up his senior year of college where he has a 3.8 GPA. Both can co exist.

These sensationalist videos garnering this level of attention is sad. As satire, if well done, they are funny. But this one wasn't meant as satire but shock value and poorly executed.

I don't really think the gaming community have ANY right to comment on the morality of this kind of parenting.

Considering how pathetic we all are as a group. How can a group responsible for the console wars be allowed to have any opinion on real life matters.

I'd love to live in a middle class house like that kid.

Damn that house is fine, more like upper class lol.

By destroying valuable property? Sell the games, hide them away until junior gets a job, but destroy them? Erratic behavior isn't good parenting.

I wouldn't mind this video being fake if it actually delivered on the "hilarious" part...it does not.

Well, if they monetize this video they will make back the worth of all the games AND then some! So... I see this was a good idea!

edit: The guy has 22k subs, and monetized it... It's just another channel trying to make it big off the "Greatest Freakout Ever" series of staged videos.... It looks like it's working too... Wish I could come up with this stupid crap before these people so I could make the money and put it to good use funding my career and life goals.

As long as you reactivate it for videos that deserve a bit of money.

I do indeed, sir.

RedLetterMedia, all of those hilarious cartoonists getting screwed by Youtube's new system that prizes length of video watched over quality and ad views, NormalBoots' channels, etc....take my money!!
...erm, I mean, take some advertiser's money.

Raise your kids better.
Th3o  +   314d ago
A) It's fake
B) Not all kids are a product of how they are raised. There are many more factors than "raise your kids better"

Thank You
TheSaint  +   313d ago
Nurture over nature 99% of the time, so like I said. Raise your kids better.
Th3o  +   313d ago

That's not the point, I'm stating it's not the only factor. There are plenty of other factors.

No matter how good the parent is, if the child is not willing or self disciplined he/she will continue to do so when the parent is not around.

Stop seeing everything as black and white.
Boody-Bandit  +   314d ago
You don't "raise" your kids. You care for, provide for, and guide your children. You don't have ownership in that they do what you say no questions asked. They are all individuals. You can merely feed them, cloth them, house them, care for them and instill strong values into them while hoping for the best.

The hardest working most well intentioned caring parents are not in control of the path their children will ultimately take. All you can do is your best and hope in the end it wasn't in vain.

Oh and BTW. This was fake.

its not real of course. you can see by the discs on the lawn that the discs are CD blanks. otherwise there would be the console too under the lawnmover but it isnt.
Clown_Syndr0me  +   314d ago
Pause the video at 01.29 you can clearly see the game disc of GUN and several other titles, so they are all real games. But they look like older games that he probably doesn't play anymore and were worth sacrificing for the video.
Boody-Bandit  +   314d ago
You don't need to pause it anywhere to know it was fake. It was horrible acting from jump. Just listen to how horribly exaggerated his voice was while listing the games that were missing. Dude ALL your games are gone. You don't go babbling out a list.

Than he runs right out the backdoor knowing his dad wasn't cutting the grass but waiting on him for effect? Come on man. How can anyone watch this video and instantly not see how staged the whole thing was?

I knew 10 seconds in it was fake and when you do a little research you find out it's just a bunch of clowns that make youtube videos for hits. I would say these guys really need to hone their craft but it's obvious most people are gullible, easily deceived and entertained.

This is their facebook page

@boody-bandit I never claimed you had to pause it to see it was fake, that much was obvious. Just pointing out they actually did destroy real games, not just blank discs like endzeitkind said.
Boody-Bandit  +   313d ago

Do you see a disagree from me on your comment? Quite the opposite. I agreed with you. So I wasn't singling you out or insinuating anything about your statement. Merely piling on where you left off but a little more abrupt with my response with just how ridiculously fake this video was from jump. *exhale brotherman* Not everyone on N4G has their hands up with their fingers balled up and ready to start swinging.

while it is fake, the video is not hilarious, and the dad has to do something to make his son find a job, but this is the last method I would use, if it happens to me.

I know its fake but...

Why wouln't the dad just kick his crap to the curb. You are an adult, now GTFO! Worked on me. Albeit I had a job, but I quit that job got out of that going nowhere town and now am better off than they have ever been.

I'm not bitter at them, its how life is. Learn to take care of yourself.
iistuii  +   314d ago
I know one thing, if he does get a job it won't be acting.
SonyPS4  +   313d ago
Or maybe, if a dad would have better responsibility over his anger he would just take the games and sell them. Even if that means selling the entire collection at GameStop for $20 bucks, that $20 could be used for gas to take the kid to work.
iistuii  +   313d ago
Chill out, the whole thing is staged...
Relientk77  +   314d ago
Damn the mower really f**ked up those games lol
TheOnlyMastrx  +   313d ago
Its fake, incase anyone doesn't know this yet, these guys make other videos like this one.

If it were real though, they should have just kicked the kid out, he'd have to find his own way in life. And on the kids part, call the police, simple as that.
tommygunzII  +   313d ago
The dad was the only normal one.
SonyPS4  +   313d ago
This is fake, but say if this is real, then it's a right thing done wrong. Selling the games for money to pay for the kid's future would be a better choice. The games are gone from this child's possession, and you get back some of the money invested in them.

Please don't use rage to get your point across if there are much better options available to you. You don't want your kid(s) growing up reflecting your faults, because they can, and they could end up hitting their spouse or abuse their kids because they have "learned" that destructible rage is acceptable.

I wouldn't want to be near some raging man in real life, regardless of his reasons.

I know it's fake, but I don't understand why they even made this video.

A) it's not funny
B) if it was meant to fool people, then the father has no right to destroy his paid for items, even if he is the parent
C) acting is just awful
D) why make a video with the point of video games being a waste of time. It's a hobby, that millions, possibly even a billion (idk) people enjoy

I'm out.
