    That video is from last Christmas... The Sun is just retarded and made a new article about it.

    Also, the kid did get the 360 a week later. The prank was punishment for him sneaking a peak at his gifts early. Seems reasonable enough.

    Opening my presents in a couple of hours - I think I may have gotten some 360 games!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS, GBATEMP!

    Shows once again how unreliable that so-called newspaper is.

    Yeah, his hair is spiky and dyed... but he's not tanned. He's black...

    PS: This was also featured in The Simpsons some years ago, with Bart's Xmas present being a PS2... box xD

    A cruel yet responsible prank. The kid now learns his lesson NOT to peek at your gifts to early or they will turn into clothes.

    Funny, I thought my christmas week was hectic due to the fact having a leakage inside my room, it almost flood the whole rug...then I have to clean it up.

    They're lucky that kids not like those recent psychopaths that kill for their games.

    It was obvious when the kid could pick up the 360 box. I mean, it looked light!

    But damn, I would hate that kind of prank, my dad did something similar, giving me a shoebox with a creepy Flinstones doll, and I got mad, but then he picked up Fred, and lifted a layer of paper, and there was a DS game... Man I was pissed for a second!

    That's nothing. At least the kid actually got his present.

    To tell you the truth, the exact same thing happened to me a few years ago. I peeked at all of my presents. On Christmas day, I got books with messages in them and everyone laughed. I didn't cry though, I was just pissed off like I don't know what. But I ended up getting my presents anyway lol.

    I got a copy of Mario 64 at a pawn shop in 2000 when I first had an N64. That was the first time I owned it. Problem was that the copy was a bootleg copy of a sports game with a Mario 64 label. I hate sports games most of the time, so I was a bit unhappy. Took it back and got money back though.
