What's interesting about this video is everyone has a different "take" as to what's going on. Some think the laughter of the family means they are close knit, others think they are playing a joke or making fun of the kid, while (yet) others feel it's a testimony to gratefulness. I first played with the sound off, then with sound. Odd gift unless you really "love" bananas. Kids are funny...I have also seen a child dance for joy when handed a grilled cheese sandwich on Venice Beach :) Report

This little boy got the joke on THEM! They meant it as a mean teasing, but he got food! Little guy was hungry and more than that, he was grateful! Report

I think the gift givers meant it as a teasing moment for the child but he showed them! What a great clip. That's the attitude to have for all the "small" gifts in our lives. ;) Report

He's definitely not materialistic. It must be his favorite food and that's a good thing. A good lesson in getting hyped about the simple things. He is such a cutie and obviously for real in his enthusiasm for the banana.

I have the opposite reaction. The kid seems happy enough, but to me, hearing the adults laughing so much says, "Haha, stupid kid." It just rubs me the wrong way. Report
