A man who bought his wife a dress that was too small for her ‘to motivate her to lose weight’ was left stunned by her brilliant response.
TikTok user @mike_p_89 said that he’d noticed that his wife had “gained just a little bit of weight lately,” on the social media platform where he regularly posts funny videos.
So he surprised her with a gift that would “motivate” her to lose the extra pounds, not expecting her to get revenge.
In the video that has been viewed almost 17 million times, Mike claimed: “What I decided to do was, for her birthday I bought her a really, really nice dress, but just a couple of sizes too small.
“I put a note on it that said ‘I’m really looking forward to seeing you in this’, thinking, you know, it might motivate her.”
But what she said in return left him red-faced.
He explained: “Well anyways, I came home from work the other day and I saw a pack of condoms that were way, way too big for me on the counter.
“It had a note on it, it said ‘I’m really looking forward to seeing you in these’.”
Since being posted, the video has been liked more than 2.5 million times and has received more than 28,000 comments.
One person said: “She matched ur energy real quick.”
Another said: “Well you did kind of deserve that haha.”
“Your wife is a QUEEN,” exclaimed a third.
Whilst another said: “You hurt her feelings. You should love her no matter if she’s gained weight, just like she’s loved you.”
And one person put: “Yep that backfired amazingly.”
