What's interesting about this video is everyone has a different "take" as to what's going on. Some think the laughter of the family means they are close knit, others think they are playing a joke or making fun of the kid, while (yet) others feel it's a testimony to gratefulness. I first played with the sound off, then with sound. Odd gift unless you really "love" bananas. Kids are funny...I have also seen a child dance for joy when handed a grilled cheese sandwich on Venice Beach :)

This kid is happy for a banana! We should all be this grateful!

This little boy got the joke on THEM! They meant it as a mean teasing, but he got food! Little guy was hungry and more than that, he was grateful!

We should all be like this. It should not take a lot to make us happy!

Happy is Happy. He was truly thankful for his gift. How simple but precious was his reaction!

I think the gift givers meant it as a teasing moment for the child but he showed them! What a great clip. That's the attitude to have for all the "small" gifts in our lives. ;)

He's definitely not materialistic. It must be his favorite food and that's a good thing. A good lesson in getting hyped about the simple things. He is such a cutie and obviously for real in his enthusiasm for the banana.

I have the opposite reaction. The kid seems happy enough, but to me, hearing the adults laughing so much says, "Haha, stupid kid." It just rubs me the wrong way.

There is nothing more beautiful than a happy and grateful child.

That kid is so cute!
