Here’s a video of a military father returning from Afghanistan and surprising his son by showing up at his birthday party disguised as Captain America. It is as adorable and tear-jerking as all of that sounds, times several billion.
The kid’s reaction to the reveal at 1:36 is just priceless, but I think my favorite part might be the kid answering the door and super-casually saying “Hi” to Captain America at 0:16, because in the mind of any child, it’s just completely plausible that Captain America would just show up at your house someday.
Good luck topping this video, Avengers movie:
I wish Captain America would show up at MY birthday…
What was that, Dan?
