Back in the days before you could use digital receipts to hit someone with cold, hard facts, you only had a few basic tools at your disposal when trying to prove a point: poster board, some markers, a printer and some pizzazz. It looks like Malaysia’s kids are hip to the power of colorful presentations as these three mini-moguls try to convince her to get them a dog.
Equipped with a tri-fold poster board (aka a top of the line presentation tool) and multimedia (aka an iPad), Malaysia’s kids outline seven reasons why they need a dog and use science to back up the facts. Her oldest son spearheads the presentation and likes to keep his points very brief, “A dog will keep you in shape… says science.” That should have been enough but of course as a mom, Malaysia wasn’t sold and the presentation had to carry on. As they rattle off points, it’s clear that each kid has a role in this pitch: her oldest son delivers the points, her daughter serves a hype woman (she emphasizes her brother’s point of cleaning up after the dog by shouting “POOPIE”) and her youngest son serves as the charmer as he smiles to amp up the cuteness.
The kids lay it on thick but Malaysia is not entirely convinced yet. But there’s clearly hope for the kids when she says, “I subtracted their dad, kinda got to replace him.” Keep hope alive little Pargos, a dog might be around the corner after all.
