A father’s attempt at a birthday surprise backfired, leaving the kids in tears.
The incident took place in the Chinese city of Huizhou, Guangdong province, when a father dressed as “Ultraman” showed up for a birthday surprise.
But instead of pleasing the children, he ended up frightening them and the footage shows them screaming and trying to hide in floods of tears.
In the first video, he can be seen entering the room dressed as a Japanese superhero, while a boy wearing the same clothes is sitting in a child safety seat, with another teenager next to him.
A woman filming the action rushes to catch the boy who has climbed out of the seat and tries in vain to back the terrified boy.
But he refuses and tries to escape, clinging to her after breaking down in tears.
The other boy starts crying too, so the woman takes him off the seat while the first boy, who is now on the floor, hides behind her.
As Ultraman approaches, the two boys are clearly scared of what is to come, but the woman finds it hilarious and bursts out laughing.
In a second video, the woman can be seen kneeling and still holding the boy while the other continues to hide behind her.
In a moment, the frightened boy, still sobbing, runs towards the person who is recording.
The footage was taken by the boy’s aunt, identified only as Ms. Chen, and the father’s outfit was meant to be a surprise for his son’s birthday.
The parents had planned to take a picture of the Ultraman with both children, but their intention was not successful because the children were too scared.
Ultraman is a Japanese superhero and the main character in the Ultraman TV series who has great fighting skills similar to Superman which he uses to protect the universe.
The Mirror reported earlier this month how people in China stormed shops and looted food as public anger mounted over a tough lockdown in China.
A clip taken in Shanghai showed locals fighting after panic buying turned into looting at a government food supply site.
Local residents were also seen tearing down barriers put up by authorities to prevent the city’s 26 million people from moving between the streets.
Among the draconian rules angering people in China’s biggest city is a 22-hour lockdown – forcing locals to stay indoors all day apart from a two-hour window to gather food and supplies.
Officials have also separated infected babies and children under the age of seven from their parents to prevent the virus from spreading within the family unit.
But the strict measures are doing little to improve the city’s soaring rates of omicron — with 23,600 new cases reported by state media.
