A couple’s gender reveal turned out to be a complete failure after the surprise balloon, which was to reveal the gender of their future baby, flew away. A video of the unforeseen event went viral on several social media platforms after it was shared on Reddit.
Viewed over 6 million times, in the 29-second clip, the couple can be seen trying to burst a black coloured balloon with sticks. However, after several failed attempts, the string holding the balloon gives away as the man tries to pop it.

Shared on Twitter along with a caption that read, “Finally, a gender reveal that I can get behind,” the video has triggered several reactions online. While many ridiculed the concept of hosting an event to reveal a child’s gender, others wondered why the couple was using sticks to pop the balloon.

If my parents held a stupid gender reveal party I’d fly away too.
