The thing about kids is that, well, they’re kids, so they don’t appreciate the things they should.
Chicken nuggets? Hell, yeah! Ina Garten’s perfect roast chicken? Nah.
Disneyland? Yes, please! Yosemite National Park? Pass.
Toys? GIMME! A Rolex? *blank stare*
Now you may think that last one is kind of ridiculous but… I got an internet video for you that says otherwise! Cuz rapper Future recently tried to give his son a Rolex for his 5th birthday and… well… it didn’t go that great!
In the video, Future presents his little boy with the shiny Rolex and his son is basically like, “Frankly, my dude, I don’t give a damn.” It’s a low-key epic.

I mean, let’s be real: he was subtle about it, but little man straight-up DRAGGED his dad!
Consider the subtext, which is basically: “Hey Dad, I’ma let you finish, but I DO NOT CARE ABOUT THIS AT ALL WHERE ARE MY LEGOS?”
That languid, disinterested little “Thaaanks” at the end is everything. It is a mood for all seasons. It is the insincere, internal reply to every work email ever written, every unhelpful customer service encounter, and every date you have ever been on (or is that just me?).
It will ring out in my heart forevermore.
And the internet is similarly in hysterics over this little boy’s lack of enthusiasm for his totally age-inappropriate gift!
I’m cryinggggggg Future got his son a Rolex for his 5th bday and buddy said “THAAAANKS!” like it was a lukewarm Capri Sun 😂😭😭

What does a 5 y.o need with a Rolex ? Can he even tell time?

A few others couldn’t help but come to Future’s defense.
Future had a whole superhero themed birthday party full of toys for baby future and y’all only focusing on the Rolex he got. Damn y’all weird as hell

If you had money to buy your child a Rolex for fun you would too

People who can’t afford a Rolex talking about what Future should or shouldn’t buy for his family with the money he earned. pic.twitter.com/ffCWruSFWD

Maybe you’re mad that baby Future has a rolex because your own dad never bought you one.
