While the lockdown implemented in several nations across the world due to the Covid-19 pandemic has hampered weddings and anniversaries due to restrictions on large gatherings, a man has come up with a thoughtful way of celebrating his wife’s birthday. Taking to Twitter, user Dan White shared a video of himself playing the guitar as his wife enters the room.
“I spent the last 11 months secretly learning guitar so I could surprise my wife on her birthday,” wrote White while sharing the video, which has now gone viral on social media. In the 28-second clip, White can be seen with the guitar playing ‘Smoke on the water’ by popular rock band Deep Purple.
