    [video] Wife Surprises Husband on Father's Day with a Brand New Corvette Stingray

    Check out this video of the ultimate Father’s Day gift, if Dad just happens to be a Corvette fanatic.

    Watch as this woman definitely earns “Wife of the Year (Century?)” honors with her surprise present for her husband last Sunday.

    “My husband is the Protective Dad from the Protective Dad Pranks videos,” she explains, “and today I’m going to surprise him – not a prank video, just a huge surprise.”

    She explains that the reason for her gift is that her husband has sacrificed so much for our country serving as a military veteran and during the 9/11 attacks.

    “I just feel that he deserves this,” she says.

    With the help of their daughter, the family gets the ultimate “non-prank” on the ultimate prankster.

    We see the daughter driving her dad home after treating him to a nice meal, “but Mom has another surprise for you,” she warns.

    “But you have to wear this,” she says, holding up a blindfold.

    “I ain’t puttin’ that on,” Dad says.

    “Yes, you are.”

    “Last time I did that you pranked me.”

    “You’re puttin’ it on. You’re stubborn.”

    “If you prank me, it’s over with.”

    Finally, Dad agrees to wear the blindfold after more back-and-forth arguing, and father-daughter arrive at the end of their driveway.

    He staggers up the drive and his wife walks over to greet him.

    “Be a good boy,” she jokes as he continues to warn against being pranked. “Now before you take the blindfold off, remember what you always said you dreamed of?”

    “Yeah,” he says, hesitatingly.

    “OK, all our marriage all I’ve heard is the one thing … the ultimate gift. Remember?”

    He hops around excitedly.

    “OK, take your blindfold off.”

    And there it is, a 2019 Torch Red Corvette coupe, HIS 2019 Torch Red Corvette, sitting right in front of him.

    “What in the hell?!?” he exclaims. “Did you rent it?”

    “No. No, it’s yours,” she says handing him the key fob.

    “No, it’s not.”

    “Yes, you deserve it!”

    He wipes a tear, still convinced it’s got to be rented.

    She finally convinces him it’s his by taking him around the car to the glove compartment and showing him the paperwork.

    “It’s brand new!” he says upon noticing the window sticker still in place.

    He falls to his knees, begins crying, hugs her, says thank you as he continues to sob, and then kisses her.

    “This is unreal.”

    He opens the door, climbs in and exclaims, “Oh my gosh, it smells so good!”

    Firing up the engine for the first time, he revs it up loudly.

    “So, Dad, what do you think?” his daughter asks.

    “I don’t even know what to think! It’s not like it’s materialistic, but when you’re a little boy and you dream about something like this…” pointing to the car and whirling his body around, “she’s definitely the greatest wife in the whole town!”

    Of course, ever the prankster, Dad then notes that “this opens up another whole world of prank videos!”

    We expect to see this Corvette in future videos.

      Thanks for posting this John, amazing video! Onions got me too. That’s how I felt when I got my first and second Vette. I also have had a love affair with Corvettes since I was 5 years old. My dad was the GM of a Chevy dealership and on Saturdays my mom would bring us there and we would go to lunch. I always would run to the Corvette in the showroom and jump in the drivers seat and pretend I was driving it. I also have an amazing wife who gets it and pushed me to get a C8. I’m sure when we pick her up in BGA I will probably loose it.

      Thank you too all our military & first responders!

            I had to watch that video again. Not sure what makes that guy so lucky. Is it the New Corvette or such a giving and thoughtful wife. I'll go with the wife. Corvettes can come and go but that is one hell of a lady.
