A TikToker’s sentimental birthday surprise for her boyfriend has got people talking.
Influencer @scoutthepupp coordinated an elaborate birthday gift for her beau, Craig, by organizing all of his loved ones to ring him up every 15 minutes. Although caught off guard, he adored the day-long bonanza of birthday wishes. People appreciated how loving the surprise was without being an expensive gift.
“Scheduling all your boyfriend’s friends to call him every 15 minutes on his birthday,” she wrote in the caption.
She posted the extensive birthday schedule that began at 9 a.m. and ended at 6 p.m., featuring 31 callers. The influencer also shared text messages from Craig as the day unfolded. He was pretty surprised that people were actually calling him to talk.
“Calls from my parents were always a thing but never my buddies,” Craig texted her. “Now I feel like a bad friend for being a birthday texter. I need to start calling people, haha.”
After 23 calls, he finally figured out she had mobilized all his loved ones for the calls. Despite learning of her little scheme, Craig seemed to appreciate the special gift.
“Probably my best one ever,” he said of this birthday. “Most love I’ve felt in many birthdays. What a fun day.”
The thoughtful birthday gift racked up 5.4 million views.
“Perfect example of how the most thoughtful gestures can literally be free,” someone said.
“My toxic trait is that I wouldn’t answer any of the calls,” another joked.
“I’m a massive introvert but would still love this. My best friend forgets my birthday every year, and no one calls but my grandma because she’s a real one,” a person wrote.
