Gender reveals and their over-the-top nature have become quite hated in recent times, especially after that couple burned down a forest.
But one dad-to-be may have brought them back with an incredibly rad, guitar-smashing reveal that caused no fires but the one in his heart.
Originally posted to TikTok by @heathandemii, the video has been viewed nearly 12 million times and liked 2.7 million times. It shows the future father holding a guitar over his shoulder as a classic Guns N’ Roses tune plays through a big speaker and a raucous crowd watches in anticipation before, BOOM, he smashes that six-string and goes nuts.
How bloody incredible was that?! The initial fake, timing the smashing of the guitar exactly right, and then the pure, euphoric celebration. What a moment.
Commenters, some who aren’t even fans of gender reveals, are saying the party looks like a great time and are stoked to see the dad so pumped about having a daughter.
“My favourite part is him getting hyped for a future daughter,” said one person. “Then, when his wife or gf approached him, he calmed down, gently wrapped his hands around her face and kissed her so lovingly. THAT'S A MAN!”
“As someone who grew up with an 80’s rock-loving dad, I just know that little girl is gonna have an amazing relationship with her father,” wrote another.
“This is a great gender reveal,” a third added. “It’s a cool play on guitar breaking, is safe, and that dad is not throwing a tantrum over having a girl.
“The first gender reveal that didn’t absolutely piss me off or annoy me,” one more said. “And awesome touch with ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’!”
Yeah, gotta agree with those comments. That was a hell of a way to not only reveal the gender but also celebrate - the dude went buck wild with ecstasy!
